Because love should be the strength that moves us when teaching our students. And because sharing keeps us moving to reach them... Here you can find ressources I make for teaching English, mainly to children.

I've created this activity for my 1st and 2nd Grades. This activity is done after listening to the story "The Very Hungry Caterpillar".

 

You may decide if you let your students make the caterpillar on their own (and here you see if they can remember the order of the food in the story), or you can make a listening activity, where students cut the food (2nd page) and you say the day of the week and the food they should stick on the caterpillar.

 

In my first experience with this activity, I tried the listening activity and it was a bit confusing, because they simply didn't listen to me and almost everyone knew the sequence and wanted to glue everything even before I said anything... so, by experience, I think it's better to let them make the caterpillar on their own. If someone has questions about a day/food you can always do the listening activity.

 

 

Note: Personally I don't find some of the food the caterpillar eat on Saturday very interesting and important to teach, so I changed this food for "piece of chocolate cake, lollipop, ice-cream, piece of pie and cheese".

A sheet where students can revise the days of the week, the months of the year, the seasons and the numbers from 1 to 10. The words are written in a train in order to be more attractive to students.

This is a very good story to teach days of the week or to introduce food.

I adapted the story, because the original would be too hard for my little students (I changed some language and changed some food items). I told them the story and then made a puppets play which was seen by the parents at the end of the year. The students built their own puppets for the story and had lots of fun.

 

I was the narrator of the puppets play, but it can also be a student.

 

After telling the story there are many activities you can make with your students. If you want some ideas, the following webpages are very helpful: DLTK and Teachingheart.

 

This is the text for the puppets play I performed with my students.

Here is a very easy and attractive activity to teach the days of the week. Students have to cut the days of the week from the 2nd page and paste them in the caterpillar in the right order. Then they colour it as they want. A nice way to motivate the students is to hang their caterpillars on the classroom's wall.
