Teach Spanish to beginners, with vocabulary that prepares them to comprehend and enjoy the classic book La oruga hambrienta. This unit introduces basic numbers, colors, fruits, days of the week, and high-frequency words (es, tiene hambre, grande, pequeño, ve, come, quiere, buenos días, buenas noches, mañana, duerme).


Your purchase includes three lessons. Each lesson includes enough materials for multiple teaching sessions. Unit includes a teacher's guide with ideas and tips for teaching each lesson.

Lesson 1: Greeting, numbers, colors.
Includes: picture cards, game boards, activity sheets, and more.

Lesson 2: Fruits (optional: more foods), intro to caterpillars and butterflies.
Includes: Bingo boards, game boards, activity sheets, 3 videos narrated by a native speaker (also included as PPTs), graphing activity, picture cards, and more.

Lesson 3: Days of the week.
Includes: 3 videos narrated by a native speaker (also included as PPTs), calendar, caterpillar template for story sequencing, mini-books, and more.


***Please note that I designed this unit for Spanish LEARNERS, not native speakers. I focused on teaching high frequency words that teach about caterpillars and butterflies, not every term found in the original book. If you are looking for a unit that teaches 100% of the original vocabulary, this might not be the unit for you!***

I designed Orugas y Mariposas as a back-to-school review for teachers who have finished my series Los pollitos dicen.

My PreK-2nd Grade series are based on the idea that even young learners need whole language in context, not just isolated lists of words. Through storytelling, visuals, games, songs, and movement, your students can get rich input while having fun!
