Butterfly song or rhyme?

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by evebatten, Apr 22, 2012.

  1. There's the life cycle song to the tune of she'll be coming round the mountain:- there's a tiny caterpillar on a leaf wiggle wiggle(wiggle your little finger), he will eat the leaves around him til he's full munch munch (thumb to fingers in eating motion), a cocoon is what he's spinning for his home spin spin ((spin index fingers) then he'll b a butterfly and fly away flap flap (put thumbs together and make flapping moves). So the caterpillar story went like this wiggle wiggle munch munch spin spin flap flap . It's from the bobby shaft song book. I recall the butterfly flutterby poem vaguely but dont know where it is. I'm sure someone will. eve
  2. Ha I found one. Actually there's a lot of poems that Use the butterfly/flutterby rhyme but some are a bit too much for EY
    Try this one. http://www.angelaspoems.webeden.co.uk/beautiful-butterfly/4538844060

    Thanks all :) I've found this one for PSRN

    Five little caterpillars sitting on a leaf,
    One little caterpillar fell asleep.
    When it woke up it found it could fly.
    Now there?s four caterpillars and one butterfly.

    Four little caterpillars sitting on a leaf ?

    I'm still on the hunt for the one I used to know, sure it went like butterfly butterfly, floating in the summer sky???

    However, found this with a variety of minibeast songs http://www.earlylearninghq.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Minibeast-song-book.pdf

    Hope it is useful! :)
