My students love Eric Carle's story, "The Very Hungry Caterpillar", so I wanted to design some caterpillar-themed activities that would help practice a variety of standards.

Teacher Comments:

  • "I was very pleased with this packet. The image quality is fantastic! Beautiful, eye catching designs. Fun and creative!"
  • “Super-cute.” “My kids love this!”
  • "My students love the Very Hungry Caterpillar. This resource was the perfect fit.”
  • “As in the Alphabet resource...I just love this one as well. Such fun for the kids.”

This packet deals with number fun and reinforces number recognition, number word recognition, plus counting from 0-20, as well as skip counting by 2s, 3s, 5s, and 10s.

Completed caterpillar craftivities make a sweet spring bulletin board.

I've included a poster for the center of your display.

There are 4 head options, plus 5 butterfly patterns, should you want to attach one to the end of your caterpillar.

There are number cards, along with number word cards, so children can play "Memory Match" and "I Have; Who Has?" games.

There's a 3-page tip list of ideas for the cards, including the "Kaboom" game, along with an odd & even sorting mat for more practice.

The matching math symbol cards ( +, -, =, <. >) allow children to make equations with the cards as well.

I've also included 2-on-a-page number posters with matching groups/sets of caterpillar cards to use as anchor charts or flashcards.

There's a matching numbered caterpillar (0-10) you can make as well, which makes a colorful display.

Finally, I've included a black and white, segmented caterpillar bookmark worksheet. Choose a starting number for your students and have them fill in the circles with the rest of the numbers.

I'm Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy counting with a caterpillar.
