The Letter B (Part 3)

Continuing on from The Letter B (Part 2)

Today we started off with reading the Hungry Caterpillar again. We recapped over the stages of the life cycle & then Seychelle acted out the scenes of the book.

We only had a few props available but Seychelle had so much fun acting out the caterpillar. This was the highlight of her week :)


(The second is Seychelle as a caterpillar in a cocoon).

Then we played a few games using the theme of the book.

The first game was sorting out the the days of the week into the correct order & then assigning the right number of fruit to that day (of course including Saturday being the day he ate all the junk food).

We then played another game.  This was a matching game - Seychelle had to try and read the sentence (with my help) that corresponded with the correct picture. The game was about the life cycle of the butterfly and a good summary and test to see whether she knew the stages correctly. She did very well!

 We ended the day off with doing a quick and easy butterfly craft using a paper plate & a toilet roll.
