Cooking Snack Recipe Ideas to Cook Up for Your Caterpillars and Butterflies Theme! Cooking with children helps develop their math skills and helps them to learn how to follow directions. It also allows for some great conversation! Ask many questions while cooking with your children to encourage conversation! Be sure to ask specific Space theme questions while making these fun snacks! Yummy! Have a taste test of all the foods in the Very Hungry Caterpillar book. Make a chart with each food listed in a column on the left side. Make two more columns next to that one- one that says YES and one that says NO. Label the chart: Do we like what the Very Hungry Caterpillar Ate? In advance, print each child's name as many times as the types of food you have listed on the chart. As each child tries each food, ask if they like it. Then ask them to place one of their premade name tags under either YES or NO. Review the chart over the next few days to discuss: Which food did most children like? Dislike? Which has 3 names? Four?

Inside each baggie the children found… Apple slices Pretzels Vanilla Wafers I didn’t originally add the vanilla wafers to the baggies but the children said the butterfly needed a body and decided that a vanilla wafer would do! Each child arranged their butterfly parts on a paper plate to create a butterfly…

songs The Caterpillar Submitted by Tina The fuzzy little caterpillar went up into a tree (act like your climbing) spun his cocoon and then (yawn) went to sleep (spin hands) While he was sleeping he dreamt that he could fly (making flying motion) When he woke up (loud, excited) he was a butterfly. Caterpillar (Sung To "Row, row your boat") Submitted by Jenny One caterpillar , two caterpillars, three caterpillars today. Four caterpillars, five caterpillars eating all the day. One cocoon, two cocoons three cocoons today. Four cocoons, five cocoons sleeping all the day. One butterfly, two butterflies three butterflies today. Four butterflies, five butterflies, flying, flying away. The Little Caterpillar (Sung to "Itsy, Bitsy Spider") Submitted by Sarah The little caterpillar crawled up into a tree, Spun his cocoon and slept so quietly, All through the winter he didn't make a sound, He dreamt of his new life when he'd be flying all around. While he was sleeping the snow did gently fall, Winter came and went, then her heard the robin's call, Come on Mr. Butterfly, out of your cocoon Spread your wings and fly for me, while I sing my tune.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
