Do you read Eric Carle's story The Very Hungry Caterpillar?
It's one of my all time favorite spring books.

With that in mind, I designed these number puzzles, which are a quick, easy and super-fun way for your students to practice sequencing numbers from 1-10, count backwards from 10-1, as well as skip count by 2s, 3s, 5s & 10s.

At the same time they are reviewing the story, as well as the life cycle of a butterfly.

To celebrate spring, I'm pricing these at $4.95 instead of $6.95.

There are 45 different kinds with over 100 puzzles in all.

Some are vertical, while others are horizontal.

Pick and choose your favorites to make a collection of choices for your students.

Print, laminate & trim the full color options and use as an independent math center.

Use the black & white ones, so that students can color & cut up their own puzzle.

For an interesting “craftivity” have students glue their puzzle to a sheet of construction paper.

Remind them to leave a little bit of a gap between each numbered strip, to create an especially cool mosaic effect.

Completed projects make a cute bulletin board.

I'm Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy number practice with The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
