To remember how to form letters correctly and use alliteration in writing.
This lesson includes:
a video explaining caterpillar letters and a video introducing alliteration
three activities to try at home
Watch this short video about Caterpillar letters. Caterpillar letters are c, f, g, a, q and o.
Alliteration is when words start with the same sound. Watch this video to find out more.
Activity 1: Creating caterpillar letters
The video above shows us that caterpillar letters are the letters: c, f, g, a, q and o.
- Can you write them yourself?
- Try drawing all of them quite big on a piece of paper.
- Once you're happy you've drawn them all correctly, try adding caterpillar characters on to them. See how many you can fit inside one letter.
- You could even try drawing a really big letter and squeeze a whole caterpillar family inside.
Activity 2: Using alliteration in sentences
What do you know about caterpillars? See if you can write some sentences about them. Remember to use description and alliteration. Here is an example (alliteration shown in bold).
-Beautiful butterflies fly gracefully in my gorgeous garden.
See how many you can write. Try to aim for at least three sentences.
Activity 3: Complete the alliteration
Have a go at the activity below and see if you can fill in the missing alliteration.
