Caterpillar Dreams by Clive McFarland (theme caterpillar)

The class this morning really enjoyed Clive MacFarland’s book. The story is about a caterpillar named Henri who dreams about flying. He chases his dream full blast! During the story some of the children said, this story is real sad. That told me they were all tied into the book emotionally. Everyone was happy with the ending.

Caterpillars

By Vicky Manning

Three little caterpillars are climbing up a tree. (Fingers crawling up your arm)

The first little caterpillar spins his cocoon. (Roll arms one over the other)

The second little caterpillar spins his cocoon. (Roll arms one over the other)

The third little caterpillar spins his cocoon. (Roll arms one over the other)

Three little caterpillars are sleeping inside their cocoon. (Rest side of head on folded hands)

The first little caterpillar burst free from his cocoon. (Wiggle and stretch tall)

The second little caterpillar tears free from his cocoon. (Wiggle and stretch tall)

The third little caterpillar explodes from his cocoon. (Wiggle and stretch tall)

All three little caterpillars have turned into butterflies.

They stretched their beautiful wings and flew into the wind. (Flap arms up and down)
