hungry caterpillar

I nearly have this book memorized from reading it so often, it is easily my favorite read aloud!

This week we enjoyed these Songs and Rhymes:

Vegetable Song (tune: Twinkle Twinkle)source

Carrots, peas, and broccoli
Vegetables are good for me
For my snack and in my lunch
Veggie sticks are great to munch
Carrots, peas, and broccoli
Vegetables are good for me!

Fruits and Veggies
source: storytime sparks

These are the things we like to eat,
Like to eat, like to eat.
These are the things we like to eat,
Cause they’re good for us

Strawberries so ripe and red,
Ripe and red, ripe and red.
Strawberries so ripe and red,
Will satisfy our tummies.

Oranges so big and juicy,
Big and juicy, big and juicy.
Oranges so big and juicy,
Make us wipe our chins.

Pears that are plump and ripe,
Plump and ripe, plump and ripe.
Pears that are plump and ripe,
Picked from the tree.

Pumpkins that are big and fat,
Big and fat, big and fat.
Pumpkins that are big and fat
Go in a pumpkin pie.

Herman the Worm

I was sittin’ on my fencepost, chewing my bubblegum
(chew, chew, chew, chew)
Playin’ with my yo-yo,
woo-woo!

When along came Herman the worm
And he was this big (make a motion as if measuring a tiny worm)
And I said: “Herman? What happened?”
“I swallowed an orange!”

 Repeat verse three times each time Herman gets bigger,
Second verse….broccoli
Third Verse…Pineapple
Fourth verse…pumpkin
Fifth verse he gets really small again and he Burped, ‘scuse me!

We also did a felt activity which I will feature this week in my Flannel Friday post.  I will link to the post when it is up!

This weeks Early Literacy Tip:

Be interactive: Engage your child so he or she will actively listen to a story. Discuss what’s happening, point out things on the page, and answer your child’s questions. Ask questions of your own and listen to your child’s responses.
