Teaching students to follow directions is TOUGH! I use this activity as a warm up before we start our reading group as a fun way to practice vital listening and following direction skills. The goal of this activity it to help build students listening skills and improve listening comprehension.
The pack includes 24 Build A Caterpillar task cards and I do one task card a day so this pack lasts a month. It includes the Caterpillar pieces to cut out, a Caterpillar Parts poster, and the mats for students to build on. This activity is perfect for a small group warm up and your students will love it!!
To complete the activity lay out the Build a Caterpillar mat, the Caterpillar Parts poster and the caterpillar pieces. Then read the card slowly to your students. Students listen to the instructions, find the piece the task card listed and place it on the correct spot on the mat. Once finished there sundae should match the one described on the task card. This is a easy, low prep activity that lasts me all month and my students really enjoy it!
