    If you're looking for some activities to go with The Very Hungry Caterpillar, look no further!

    Memory Game

    Classic memory game inspired by The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.
    12 images on one page; 2 pages of images; print two copies of each page for the memory game, for a total of 48 cards.

    Prep: Print two copies of page to have a matching pair of images. Cut cards on lines provided (makes 12 cards per sheet). I like to round the corners for a more finished look. Laminate if desired.

    To Play: Turn cards over face down and players turn over two cards with each turn they have. The goal is to find a pair of matching pictures.

    Benefits of memory game for children:

    · helps improve memory

    · helps younger children identify objects both visually and verbally
    · encourages taking turns and sharing
    · can be played alone of with more than one player
    · can be used as a quiet activity or for a theme related center

    Yoga & Movement Pose Cards

    The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle is one of my favorite children's books of all time! I wanted to create a Very Hungry Caterpillar activity for toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarten, and first grade that could either stand alone as it's own activity (the yoga poses themselves), or go along seamlessly with Eric Carle's charming story of caterpillar to beautiful butterfly. If you are looking for a way to make learning fun, this is it!!!!

    These cards work well for distance learning or in the classroom, and they can also be used digitally or printed. I included more specific printing instructions in the .pdf along with the Terms of Use.

    I have included a complete lesson plan with suggestions for all the Yogalore components, but have also included blank cards for you to customize this pose card set for your needs *blank cards are not featured in the preview due to space.

    This pose card set comes with 40 cards total, 20 including individual yoga cards (a few cards have more than one pose for the sun salutation), a partner yoga pose and group activity that relates to caterpillars and butterflies. I also included yoga poses to demonstrate the butterfly life cycle.

    The cards consist of photos with children doing yoga poses. Some poses have factoids about the object in the poses/give tips while doing the pose.

    Other Suggestions for Use:

    1. For physical activity on a rainy or inclement day
    2. As a break between tests or focused activity
    3. As a focusing activity prior to testing
    4. Time filler between activities

    5. A lesson plan for a substitute

    6. A "just in case" activity to have on hand

    7. For a class-motivating activity; end-of-the-day activity
    8. Homeschooling

    9. For a more one-on-one activity, in a therapeutic setting
    10. As a family activity to do at home

    Ways To Organize:
    *Keep them uncut and put in sheet protectors (this is what I do -- I print 16 on a page and use them at-a-glance during my classes, but I also have a set to use with the children)
    *Cut and store in a recipe-type storage box
    *Cut and keep on a ring for easy access and usage
    *Cut and laminate for durability
    *You can also download to your tablet/mobile device to always have on hand in addition to/instead of printing.

    Yoga has so many benefits, including but not limited to:
    *Relaxes and alleviates stress
    *Builds self-confidence and self-esteem
    *Increases physical activity
    *Builds strength, balance, and coordination
    *Increases ability to focus
    *Increases body awareness and overall muscle tone

    Studies have shown that teaching during movement helps strengthen learning, improve memory and retrieval of information and increase motivation and morale!!!!

    *****Printing Tips & Options*******

    Each card is approximately 3.75"W x 4.75"H in size (designed for 4 cards fit on a standard 8.5" x 11" piece of paper). That being said, you can adjust the size in your printer settings to customize the cards for your needs.

    You can print more on a page for smaller cards (drop down menu in "More settings" where it says "Pages per sheet") and it will give you other options for how many cards you would like on a sheet, you can also change the scale and increase that number so the cards are slightly larger and closer together. I like to change the scale to 197 on my cards because it leaves a little space to cut, and the cards will be slightly bigger than the standard measurements I mentioned previously.

    NOTE: In most of the photos I have printed the cards on white cardstock and rounded the corners. I use the cards for class and the kids love them (many of them are featured on the pose cards!)
