1-2-3 Come Eat 100 Things With Me!
I LOVE Eric Carle, especially The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I can teach all sorts of concepts with that story.
It's a bit early to be posting butterfly "stuff" that teachers are usually working on in April here in the midwest, however, I thought I'd post it now as I had the caterpillar eating 100 things, that fits in perfect for 100-Day, which some of you still haven't celebrated.
I have 2 different "last" pages for you to choose from: 1 celebrates 100-Day, the other has an ending that fits in nicely no matter what day of the year it is.
I enjoy nailing at least 3-5 Common Core State Standards when I design a lesson. This one covers quite a few CCSS: RF.K1a, RF.K.1c, RF.K.3a, RL.K.10, RF.K.4, L.K.2a, L.K.2b,L.K.5a, K.OA.1a, K.MD.3 K.CC.1a, K.CC.5, 1.NBT.2c, 1.NBT.5, 1.MD.3
Since the original Very Hungry Caterpillar goes through the days of the week, I decided to have this starving caterpillar eat through the hours in a day, so that I could cover telling time.
The packet includes
- The Hungry Caterpillar Eats 100 Things easy reader,
- 2 caterpillar craftivities,
- a food sorting idea,
- + 64 circle pictures of food
Students trace and write numbers & number words, as well as the time, drawing the appropriate hands on the clock.
They also circle the capital letters and add end punctuation to the simple sentences. I've used as many sight and Dolch words that I could fit in, that sounded appropriate.
Children cut and glue the groups of 10 pieces of food to their matching numbered boxes, as they count by 10's to 100.
I think you'll find this a fun addition to your day, no matter what you use it for.
