The Very Hungry Caterpillar

21 Mar

A funny thing happened yesterday. I was talking to a sweet first grade teacher friend and she said in a comical, yet somewhat flustered voice … “whew – spring break is coming in just the nick of time”! I was curious exactly what she meant, then she smiled and said: “You know that darling mischievous boy in your SPRING FEVER blog, the one that looks like he just may have a bit of spring fever … well many of my student’s faces are beginning to look that same way”!  Haha, of course that prompted me to take another look at that darling mischievous boy.

Jennifer@Herding Kats in Kindergarten left a comment on that particular post that included a couple of adorable ideas. I loved the caterpillar “count down” idea. The kindergarten class makes a long caterpillar out of different color circles, and takes one circle off each day so they can see the caterpillar shrinking as the year winds down.

Below is a project for K-2 that is perfect for SPRING, and will tie in nicely with Jennifer’s “caterpillar count down” idea.

Sequencing refers to the ability to understand and talk about a story as an ordered series of events. This lesson is designed to introduce this skill to primary students using the book The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. In this lesson, students discuss events at the beginning, middle, and end of the story, and then sequence the events.

QUESTION FOR YOU: What are you looking most forward to with Spring Break?
