This package offers a caterpillar counting and cardinality math center suitable for preschool, pre-kg and kindergarten students. This resource has been originally created to compliment a feelings and emotions teaching unit because the caterpillars all have different facial expressions but it can also be used with an insects unit of study.
There are now two sets in this file- one set has caterpillars with legs and the other set has worms without legs. In the second set, the images are the same but I removed the legs to be used as worms.
How to use
Students name the number of the caterpillar's hat and use pom poms or cotton balls to count and build the same quantity on the circles. This activity promotes one to one counting correspondence and number recognition.,
THIS RESOURCE INCLUDES 2 sets of the following:
(5) caterpillar math strips that show 5 circles for numbers 1-5
(10) caterpillar math strips that show 10 circles for numbers 1-10
The sets come in color and black and white
