Songs and Fingerplays:
One Little Caterpillar (fingerplay)
One little caterpillar (crawl fingers up arm)

And flew away!

The Caterpillar Song
Let's be caterpillars, wiggle with me (repeat 3x)
What will we be next, darlings?
Now we're a chyrsalis, sleep with me (repeat 3x)
What will we be next, darlings?
We're butterflies now, come fly with me (repeat 3x)
That's what we are now, darlings!
