Crawling With Creativity!
Is anyone still doing caterpillar stuff? Even if you’ve completed your studies, I bet you’re still assessing and need a moment of sanity.
Why not plug in anyone of these independent activities for your kiddo’s to work on? Your students can make their own hungry caterpillar by simply coloring the template.
I made mine out of construction paper. You can run the master off on red construction paper and students can cut eyes out of yellow and green scraps if you want to make them that way.
Cut a hole for the mouth, Scotch tape a small Baggie to the back and you’re all set to feed this hungry boy all sorts of traceable cards.
I went crazy making traceable number cards from 1-30, skip counted numbers by 2’s, 3’s, 5’s and 10’s, upper and lowercase letters, all 14 adjectives used in the book, the days of the week, the months in the year, + covers so that students can make Itty Bitty booklets to match all of the categories!
There's also cards for everything that the caterpillar ate, including black and white cards so students can color their own little My Itty Bitty Very Hungry Caterpillar book which includes the rest of the story telling cards as well.
Use word cards from other packets (such as the Dolch, CVC, Shapes, or Color word card packets) and feed to review even more concepts!
Decide which cards you want your students to work on and run those off. Make all the sets for yourself, so that you can play “Flash Review” to nail all of those standards.
To make things even more fun, while reviewing whatever concept you want to work on, play “I Have, Who Has?” with your students. i.e., I have 3 who has 6?
I’ve also included several What’s Missing? worksheets for upper and lowercase letters, as well as all of the skip counted numbers + a blank template so you can program your own skill sheets.
Students can also color a pattern on their caterpillar or play the Caterpillar Creeps dice game and review the life cycle of a butterfly. I’ve included traceable life cycle cards as well. Use them as a fun way to "review-read and feed!"
