This our very much “loved” Hungry Caterpillar board book. I had originally planned on a different book. However keeping in mind the purpose of Together We Read program I wanted to choose a book that was way more accessible. Also there are tons of resources that are already out there based on this book.
Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle is definitely a classic. Simple words, classic Eric Carle style illustrations and absolutely has kid appeal.
Insya-Allah, if you do not have the book, you can print out a copy of the story from the link below.
Insya-Allah below are some of the activities that we have done so far.
These story sequencing cards were from DLTK’s.
This was a different type of sequencing. It incorporates counting as well. You can find this at Sparkle Box Insya-Allah.
Days of the Week Activities
I made these cards using pictures I found at Making Learning Fun. I also doubled them as lacing cards for some fun. This will make it real for the child as far as the caterpillar munching the food. I pasted the Arabic equivalent on the back. You can find the Arabic days of the week on Umm An-Numan’s website. It is in the Arabic calender set.
I made this pattern sequencing card also using resources from Making Learning Fun.
Rhyme – teaching names of Allah
This book presents many opportunity to reinforce that Allah is so merciful and “takes care ” of this caterpillar and makes it into a butterfly. I made this rhyme up to go with the book.
Insya-Allah there are other activities we have done based on this book. Will be updating as time permits.
