One of the big skills we work on in my class for reading comprehension is sequencing skills. My students did this simple worksheet to sequence the food the caterpillar ate in the story. This was fun, and I changed it up this year. Rather than do the activity while reading the story, I did it while watching an animated version of the story on our projector. By this point, we had already read the story 3 times! My students are visual learners and LOVED watching the story on the "big screen"
Here are a few links on youtube that have GREAT version of the story to watch! It is a great reinforcement activity after reading the story :)
Yesterday during art, we made our OWN caterpillar to put up on our reading wall. I found this craft on Pinterest and thought we'd try it! I displayed the sample I found from online on my projector and used it as a sample! For my higher students, I gave them all the paints and had them just GO from looking a the sample. For my students that needed more support, we started with the sun, then did the caterpillar and finished off with the classic "ERIC CARLE" polkadot floor! I think these turned out SUPER cute and definitely recommend you doing it with your class. It was a fun way to practice colors, fine motors and following directions!
