- The Virtual Vine offers a multitude of ideas for young ones! I love the songs, poems, math connections, art projects, and bulletin board ideas.
- Makinglearningfun.com offers various printable activities that accompany the story. I particularly like the literacy connections that include a “Caterpillar Emergent Reader Book” that children make themselves and the “Upper and Lowercase Matching Cards”.
- Teacher Vision (love this site!) provides access to “The Very Hungry Caterpillar Activities Booklet“. It offers a variety of activities in science, math, and spelling. Reproducibles for some of the projects are included.
- Lastly, I love how Ms. Cassidy uses the story to teach the trait of “voice”. You can view a video of her students’ work here: http://classblogmeister.com/blog.php?blogger_id=1337
