Hello out there

Hope everyone is enjoying a half term break. At the moment am snowed under with paperwork, review writing etc.

Just wondered if anyone could send me the words to THERE'S A TINY CATERPILLAR ON A LEAF please. Have left my book at school, and need to sort out props today if possible.

Cheers :o

Tiny Caterpillar

Tune: She'll Be Coming 'Round The Mountain

 

There's a tiny caterpillar on a leaf, wiggle, wiggle!

There's a tiny caterpillar on a leaf, wiggle, wiggle!

There's a tiny caterpillar, a tiny caterpillar

There's a tiny caterpillar on a leaf, wiggle, wiggle!

 

Additional Verses:

 

There's a hungry caterpillar on a leaf, munch, munch!

There's a shiny chrysalis on a leaf, shh, shh!

There's a lovely butterfly flying high, flutter, flutter!

The words I've got are a bit different Carol:

1st verse is same but then:

2nd verse -He will eat the leaves around him til he's full, munch, munch.....

3rd verse- A cocoon is what he's spinning for his home, spin,spin....

4th verse - He will be a butterfly and fly like this flap,flap....

 

It's great to know other versions though. Mine is from 'Bobby Shaftoe clap your hands' book

 

here are some other caterpillar songs I've found:

This song can be used with the Eric Carle book "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" The Little Caterpillar Sung to (Itsy, Bitsy Spider)

 

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.

 

Another song about caterpillars is Caterpillar (sung to Row, row your boat)

 

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.

 

 

Fuzzy Little Caterpillar

 

The fuzzy little caterpillar

In the garden creeps.

He spins himself a blanket

And soon falls fast asleep.

The fuzzy little caterpillar

Wakes up by and by

To find he has beautiful wings

And changed into a Butterfly

 

 

I'm a Butterfly...

Tune: Pop Goes The Weasel

 

I spin and spin my chrysalis,

Then I go rest inside.

When I come out,

I've changed indeed...

Look! I'm a butterfly!

 

 

Butterfly Cycle

(Tune Row, Row, Row Your Boat)

 

Hatch, hatch little egg,

I'm so very small.

Teeny tiny caterpillar,

You can't see me at all.

 

Crawl, caterpillar, crawl,

Munching on a leaf.

Crawling, munching, crawling, munching,

Eat and eat and eat.

 

Form, form chrysalis,

I'm a different shape;

Hanging by a silken thread

Until I can escape.

 

Rest, rest, chrysalis

While I change inside;

Now at last my time has come

To be a butterfly.

 

Stretch, stretch, pretty wings,

It's a special day;

Soon they will be strong enough

For me to fly away.

 

Fly, fly, butterfly,

Fly from flower to tree;

Find a place to lay my eggs

So they can grow like me.

Here's another one which our children loved...I can remember the tune but don't know what it's called!...

 

Down at the bottom of the garden, what do you think I saw?

Eggs in a cluster, yellow as a duster

They weren't there before!

 

Down at the bottom of the garden, what do you think I saw?

Caterpillars munching, caterpillars crunching

They weren't there before!

 

Down at the bottom of the garden, what do you think I saw?

Something rather super, something called a pupa

They weren't there before!

 

Down at the bottom of the garden, what do you think I saw?

I saw a butterfly, I saw it flutter by

It wasn't there before!

 

And start again...if you want to!

 

I wish I knew what the tune was, it's really catchy! :o
