The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Published on April 27, 2015 under Uncategorized

Eric Carle wrote many wonderful children’s books and ”  The Very Hungry Caterpillar ” is always a favorite of the group.

Today we read the story and then retold it using a puppet and props.

 

 

We also drew caterpillars and butterflies.

 

 

In the book the caterpillar gets very hungry and eats a lot of food that eventually gives him a stomachache .  For a literacy activity we talked about what we would eat if we got very hungry and then illustrated it.

 

 

We had a cool new caterpillar game that is a great fine motor tool. The kids have to place marbles on the caterpillars outstretched arms one at a time and it is moving. It is also making an irritating  sound but that is besides the point ! 🙂

 

I tried a salt trat for writing today but it stressed me out. I was worried the kids would ingest the salt.

 

Today was a tough day.  We had lots of hitting and meltdowns.  They are all asleep so maybe they were worn out from the weekend ?  I am hoping that was the problem.  We are much too late into the school year to still have friends impulse hitting and screaming and yelling at teachers .  This too shall pass and tomorrow will be better.
