lesson image

Instructions: Read the Mother Goose poem, 'The Caterpillar.' The instructor pronounces the dashed words phonetically and asks children to call out the words.

Brown and f-u-rr-y

Caterpillar in a h-u-rr-y;

Take your walk

To the shady l-ea-f, or stalk.

May no toad s-p-y you,

May the little birds p-a-ss by you;

S-p-i-n and die,

T-o live again a butterfly.
