The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Eric Carle

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carl is a children book that shows wonderful illustrations. I respect this book so much because the detail of his pictures are just phenomenal and I cannot wait to add this book to my classroom bookshelf one day. This story is about a very hungry caterpillar and the many things he ate after he hatched from his egg. He turns into a beautiful butterfly at th end of the book. I would rate this book a four out of five stars and is listed as a AD460L on the Lexile scale. As an activity for my class, i would have my students color a sheet with the fruits that the caterpillar ate. I will tie this into math, having my students count and color in the amount of each fruit that the caterpillar ate.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Eric Carle

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a fun story that can be read from Pre-K through 1st grade. It is about a caterpillar who eats a lot of different food items each day, and displays the life cycle of a caterpillar.

 

You can do a sequencing activity with this story, determining what the caterpillar ate each day, or you can do a science activity about the life cycle of a caterpillar. You can give the students a picture of a caterpillar with Monday - Sunday written in each part of the caterpillar's body, and the students can either write or draw what the caterpillar ate each day.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Eric Carle

This book offers a creative way for children to understand the life cycle of a caterpillar through vivid colors and fun reading styles. The illustrations throughout the book are vibrant to grab the attention of the readers and counting techniques. When reading this book to my students, I could do an activity sheet with the students that talks about counting and the life cycle of the butterfly like the book models. A great idea for an activity would be for the class to observe the life cycle of a live caterpillar in the classroom after reading this book. 

Grade Level- K-2

Lexile Level- AD460L

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Spinner Book - University
AD460L

 

Pre K-K

This book is about how a caterpillar forms into a butterfly.  I would use this story for a science lesson on the life cycle.  The students would be able to see the way that butterflies form.  I would also use this for art.  The students could create their own caterpillars out of foam balls and pipe cleaners.

4 stars

The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Eric Carle

The very Hungry Caterpillar written by Eric Carle is a 2.9 on the Accelerated Reading leveling system. The story follows the week of a caterpillar as he eats quite a bit of food. The caterpillar eats so much in the end, he turns into a butterfly. The illustrations are eye catching and interesting. This simple book can be used to teach the days of the week to early learners, but also the life cycle of a butterfly to older elementary.
