***Please note that I designed this unit for Spanish LEARNERS, not native speakers. I focused on teaching high frequency words that tell the STORY of "La oruga muy hambrienta," not every single original word from the 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 review for teachers who have finished my series Los pollitos dicen. To get an idea of what is included in those resource, download Unit 1 for FREE. Los pollitos dicen Unit 2, Los pollitos dicen Unit 3 and Los pollitos Unit 4 are also available to purchase.
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!
