Estelle brought a chrysalis from her garden and shared with our four year olds. The children decided to learn more about the caterpillars and the butterflies. This gave me an opportunity to extend their interest by reading, “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” book by Eric Carl. After listening to the story, the children decided to make their own Caterpillar books to take home with them. We brainstormed about what goes into the book and also while making the book the concept of writing from left side of the paper to right side was introduced keeping in mind the Casey, the caterpillar literacy programme that will be introduced in future.
The children enjoyed making these books that required lots of effort from their part. They demonstrated good fine motor skills and imaginative skills when they drew the pictures. What a great effort from you kids and I am sure you can’t wait to show these books to everyone!
