The Very Hungry Caterpillar Theme

Activities & Printables 

This classic book is always a favourite and frankly I don't know any preschool that do not have this book in their library. Just in case you do not have the book, you can get your copy HERE. The story line is simple, yet there are so many concepts that you can cover. The illustrations are captivating like all of  the Eric Carle's artwork. 

Below you will find links to The Very Hungry Caterpillar resources sorted by topics and concepts. Click on the links and you will be directed to the page where you can download the resources.

   graph / Chart   

 Food Printable for Graphing

 

Graphing or creating chart with your children is a great way to explore basic math concepts , reinforce mathematical thinking skills and build vocabulary. 

After reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar book, you can create a graph or chart of the food the caterpillar ate from Monday to Sunday. 

I have made a set of free printable of the food pictures that you can use to create the graph. This food printable can be used for other activities like patterning, counting, story dramatisation and more!

Graphing Worksheet

After creating a food chart with your class and if you would like an extra practice on graphing for your children, you can download the worksheets. There are two different worksheets you can choose from.

 

I let the children work in a pair, each doing a different worksheet. After they are done, they can both compare their graph and talk about what is the same or different. It is a great way to help your children not only learn to count and graph but also reinforce their thinking and observational skills.

Another option that you can do is let the children compare the graphs on the worksheets with the 'real' graph based on the book. Talk about which food are missing, which food items have the same number, etc.
