Product Description

Besides The Very Hungry Caterpillar, another of my students’ favorite Eric Carle stories is The Very Lonely Firefly.

I do a big butterfly unit in April, and a sampling of other insects in May (fireflies, ladybugs & bumble bees).

With that in mind, I designed some activities for The Very Lonely Firefly, along with a few, which also give students an opportunity to compare “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” story to “The Very Lonely Firefly”.

There are 2 Venn diagrams, as well as 2 graphing extensions and a writing prompt for this specific comparison.

I’ve also included 2 firefly “slider” craftivities, which will help reinforce the sequence of The Very Lonely Firefly, as well as the ability to retell the story.

The B&W “The Very Lonely Firefly” “Itty Bitty” booklet, is another way to practice these standards.

There’s also a “color me” bookmark, and colorful set of sequencing cards, which can be used in an independent center, as well as for Memory Match and “I Have; Who Has?” games.

The packet also includes several worksheets, one you can use as a whole-group assessment of the story, while reviewing ordinal numbers too.

There's also a graphic organizer for “beginning-middle-end”, plus pocket chart cards for story elements.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy reading these stories as much as mine do.
