Come learn some phonics with Ruby!


Caterpillar Matching and Phonics Activity

Appropriate for 4 years and up


Materials needed: cookie sheet, alphabet, 3x5 index cards cut in half, caterpillar stickers, wiggly eyes, large paper clips, magnets, popsicle stick, and pipe cleaners.


Alphabet cards: On each index card write a letter of the alphabet (use lower case letters). Affix the caterpillar sticker. For the caterpillar match make sure there are enough letters to match the word.

Put a large paper clip on each letter card.


Making caterpillars: Let the children create their own caterpillar. Wrap the Popsicle stick with the pipe cleaner, add wiggly eyes, glue on a round magnet at the head of the caterpillar (underneath)

(Note of caution: Any time you use magnets, wiggly eyes, paper clips or anything small enough to swallow careful supervision is required).


As the child picks a letter, say the letter sound. Using the caterpillar let the child move the letter in to place.
