Rhyming Caterpillars

16 Rhyming Caterpillarsblogpic

I have such fond memories of reading The Hungry Caterpillar to my own children and to my preschool students.  It was one of my very favorite books.   I use to have a puppet which started as a caterpillar and then flipped inside out to turn into a butterfly.  Now that my preschool-teaching days are long past gone and my own kiddos are now in college, I just couldn’t part ways with that caterpillar and he sits proudly on the shelf above my desk.    Since many of my teacher friends are putting away their St. Patrick’s Day-themed activities and are bringing out their spring activities for small group instruction and centers, I thought creating a few spring-themed activities would be fun.  Here are a few caterpillar-themed activities that I hope you may enjoy.

The Rhyming Caterpillar activity contains 16 colorful leaves with corresponding rhyming caterpillars.  Each rhyming leaf has between 4-5 caterpillars holding pictures.  Now you can certainly just print the activity and cut the leaves and caterpillars along the dotted line and have a ready-made activity, but you may wish to glue those caterpillars on clothespins to add a little fine motor practice as well.

Since I was in the caterpillar-making activity roll, I updated the Creepy-Crawly Caterpillar activities for beginning sounds and word families.
