What made designing this packet especially fun, was all of the super-cute clip art I've been collecting. The letters actually match Eric Carle's
book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar
To celebrate spring, I’ve knocked a dollar off this packet for a limited time.
The packet includes:
* A “trace & write”
the upper & lowercase
letters caterpillar craftivity
Completed projects make a sweet spring bulletin board
I've included a poster
for the center of your display.
This is a super-fun activity even if your students are now familiar with the alphabet
I find that just because I taught/practiced things at the beginning of the year, doesn’t mean everyone has retained everything, so it’s nice to review.
* There are 4 head
options, plus 6 butterfly
patterns, should you want to attach one to the end of your caterpillar. (I made my butterfly 3D
, by gluing the thorax of the top butterfly to the thorax of the bottom one.)
* There are upper and lowercase
(12-on-a-page) letter cards
, along with picture cards
of objects that begin
with that letter, as well as the matching word cards
, so children can play a variety of "Memory Match”
and "I Have; Who Has?" games
; or put the cards in an alphabet center
for children to sequence.
* There’s a 4-page tip list
of ideas for the cards, including the "Kaboom" game
, along with a vowel & consonant sorting mat
* I’ve also included (2-on-a-page) alphabet posters,
with a graphic
that sits on the caterpillar's tail end, and starts
with that letter.
Use these 5x7 cards as anchor charts, flashcards
, or a spring border
* For a colorful display, there’s a matching uppercase, as well as lowercase caterpillar craftivity
, that teachers can make.
Use an extra caterpillar, where the “body segment circles” are not glued together, for a puzzle center
* Finally, I've included an upper, plus lowercase bookmark-worksheet
. Students fill in the circles with the rest of the letters.
This can be used as a quick, easy & fun assessment tool
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a wonderful spring, as your little caterpillars blossom into butterflies, fluttering into the next grade.
