Topic introduction: The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Recently the year 2 students studied the story of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ by Eric Carl.
This story has great lexical prowess in teaching students new words. With the repetition throughout of how the caterpillar is still hungry and the process of counting the food items as it goes through the week - the students are able to practise and recognize these various sentences.
The story aids children with counting in English and becoming more familiar with the days of the week. It also introduces the students to biology and the life cycle of a caterpillar.
While studying the topic we also created our own butterfly and caterpillar masks and acted our way through the story - this got the class involved with those on stage acting and those sitting in their seats to say the story together - by combining the acting and storytelling- the students were able to create understand the meaning of each sentence.
