The first stage of literacy is to practice reading print from left to right. This unit provides you with a simple activity to build a caterpillar from left to right. During small group, place a card in front of the children. Beginning with the head, the children will copy the caterpillar, creating it from left to right. I also show a card and have the children tell me the colors from left to right.
After they have made their caterpillar, provide them with a blank caterpillar sheet. Have the children color it to match the caterpillar they just created.
There are 6 caterpillar cards in this unit.
You can also add letters to the circles, to create another activity!
