1-2-3 Come Feed The Very Hungry Caterpillar With Me
Review Eric Carle's story, The Very Hungry Caterpillar by feeding him a variety of "food" story cards and a whole lot more, with this fun-filled caterpillar packet.
Use my template to make this cute caterpillar for a whole-group review game, or have students color the pattern and make their own.
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.
The packet includes traceable number cards from 1-30, skip counted numbers: 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 in full color as well as in black line, so students can color their own little "My Itty Bitty Very Hungry Caterpillar" booklet, which includes the rest of the story telling cards as well.
Review more concepts by using the word cards from my other free packets, such as the Dolch words, CVC words, Shape words, Number words or Color words.
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.
Besides "feeding" the caterpillar, students can also play Memory Match or “I Have, Who Has?” games.
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 worksheets with whatever.
Students can also color a pattern on their caterpillar or play the "Caterpillar Creeps" dice game reviewing the life cycle of a butterfly. I’ve included traceable life cycle cards as well.

Thanks for visiting. It's time for this caterpillar to morph into a butterfly. It's a better way to flit through the day getting things done, rather than be a slow slug-a-bug; certainly no time for a nap in a chrysalis or anywhere else.
Sigh....So much to do with so little time to get it all done. I can't believe Easter's this weekend.
