Hi everyone, I’m excited to post my next letter, Letter C, we will be having fun with Caterpillars! We had a lot of fun with this one, hopefully you all will too 🙂
Letter C Memory Verse:
Children obey your parents in the Lord; for this is right. Ephesians 6:1
Read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and put up the letter C on our Alphabet Tree! You can download my small alphabet letters here.
Hide ‘Em in Your Heart Vol 1
Hide ‘Em In Your Heart Songs – Vol 2
A fun caterpillar puzzle. I laminated and cut into as many pieces as my prek can handle!
Letter C Scavenger Hunt: Have your child take one of their workboxes, or a basket and fill it with objects that begin with the letter “C”.
Letter C Tracing: I laminate this then use with Expo Dry Erase Markers for pre-writing practice skills.
Caterpillar Dice Game: You can either use a number die, or a dot die. I made 2 boards also, one without numbers and one with. The one without numbers, I will have her roll the die and move that many spots. The ones with numbers I’ll have her roll the die and move to the next spot with that number on it. I included small disks for game pieces, but you could also use bingo markers, beans, or whatever you have. Also, instead of using this game with dice, you can just ask questions like what does the “A” say, and if they are right they get to move one space. Its a fun way to review phonics too!
Note: To get all of the games in my Letter of the Week curriculum, please check out the curriculum in my store!
Letter C lacing Caterpillar, I printed him, laminated it, cut it out and hole punched him!
Color matching and upper/lowercase matching caterpillar puzzles. Since the capital C and lowercase c are basically the same, I just added them to the color puzzles. I printed it, laminated it then cut the caterpillars out then cut them in half.
Caterpillar magnet page. I love these magnets from Amazon, they stick well, but are not too strong, and they have a little lip that makes for easy grabbing. I use these magnets from Amazon: 100 Pcs Power Magnets.
Caterpillar Clip Cards: I got the mini-clips from Wal-mart craft section, but she also has colorful paperclips she uses as well. Really you could use anything, even bingo markers or beans, etc. Just put the correct amount on the card based on the number.
A fun size sorting game, I have her put the correct size caterpillar on the game board, but you could also have them put the sizes in order from big to small, or small to big.
Caterpillar pattern activity, my husband informed me that I really needed to put on another yellow caterpillar and another red one on the bottom two grids to show that the pattern repeats at that point, so I apologize, you may have to help your child with this one…I’ll do better next time LOL!
I love these letter matching disks. Using my letter disks, match the correct letters to the caterpillar worksheet. For more of a challenge have students match lowercase disks to the upper case letters.
C Do A Dot Page: I made this worksheet to be used with Dot-A-Dot Markers, or you could also color this in, or even glue cotton balls to it!
Graphing cards : they cards go from 1-10. You can have your kids put bingo dots on the squares, beans, cheerios, m&ms;, whatever. I usually laminate it then have her color the boxes in with a dry erase marker.
Counting Caterpillars, Put the number cards in the box, then have them count that many caterpillars to place on the leaf.
Caterpillar number order! I laminated then cut out the circles, and will have her put the caterpillar pieces in numerical order. Per reader request, (I updated this file to include numbers 1-20.)
Letter C lacing cards, I print these on cardstock then laminate for durability, then use shoe laces or yarn for lacing.
A Simple Crab Maze from Kumon’s Easy Maze book. They also have harder mazes.
Letter Collage Worksheets: The download includes letters A-Z as well as a collage idea sheet. We use the collage items as objects to decorate our letters for an alphabet book. We also color, paint, and stamp them. Since we use both upper and lowercase, I have provided both for you! Click here to download the Letter Collages:
Gigantic Floor Caterpillar: I put them all out on the floor and call out numbers and she has to hop to the correct number. I printed this on cardstock and then laminated for durability! If you prefer the traditional 1-10 rectangle cards, I have those included as well.
Letter C Coloring Page: You can paint or color this with markers, crayons, colored pencils, anything you like!
Finally some literature that will be fun:
And of course we have to finish off with The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I made a fun graphing sheet that they can fill out as you read the story, you can download the graph sheet here.
I also made lacing cards for the story as well. I punched holes in all the pieces then tied a piece of yarn to the caterpillar. As you read the story they lace on the items he eats. At the end they lace on the cocoon. I have them put the whole thing in a bag that I say is the cocoon, I put it behind my back and switch the bag out for another one containing the butterfly. After we discuss what happens to the caterpillar, I give them back their bag and let them reach inside and pull out the butterfly. They LOVE this! You can download the Hungry Caterpillar cards here!
We finished up with an caterpillar craft for fun. Did you know Caterpillars have 12 eyes? We were planning on an egg carton caterpillar, but did these instead. Use large popsicle sticks and glue pom-poms to it, pipe cleaner antennae, eyes and sparkles!
We glued cotton balls onto a letter C to make it into a Caterpillar:
Family Fun Night: I’m sure for our fun food we’ll have to do something like Cookies and watch Clifford or Care Bears. I suggested Chicken and Math Circus, but that didn’t go over so well LOL!
I tried to download the Hungry Caterpillar graphing too with no success. Like Nyla said, there were a ton of download buttons and when searching it says the files are invalid. Is there another place where these documents can be viewed and downloaded? Thanks!
I am having issues downloading the documents as well. I did click on the big blue Download button, but he keeps trying to have me download the iLivid program over and over without allowing me to download the Letter of the Week pdfs. Help!
I can’t seem to download the files. They keep telling me I have to sign-up/download a program to then be able to download them myself. Please help! Thanks
Hi erica says:
i didn’t download them! The file isn’t exist. I very very like this . So, how to get it?
I am unable to get the files as well. :-/ It tells me to download some sort of download manager, and my computer says it’s spyware… I tried to go ahead and download the manager anywyay, and I still cannot seem to download the files. Help?!?!
Why would you host your image’s on a sight right along PORN pictures of girls who supposedly want to F*** you. I did not download. The other pictures on the sight told me everything I needed to know. How can you present yourself as a God loving person but use such a disgusting sight to host your files.
I want to give you the benefit of the doubt, So maybe your site got High jacked and is diverting people to the wrong site. If this is the case you need to shut the sight down until you fix it.
I apologize, I cannot control the ads on 4shared and have contacted them repeatedly. I’m in the process of looking for a new way to host my free files however it is quite a bit of work to get everything moved to a new host. Again I’m sorry for any offensive materials on their website, like I said they are a free file sharing service and I have no control over their sidebar advertising. Obviously I don’t condone that type of material in any way and like I said I am working to get my files moved somewhere else.
I love you caterpillar activities, especially the Caterpillar dice game. I can’t seem to download it. can you help?
I’m sorry, due to inappropriate ads and virus issues I’ve temporarily removed my free Letter of the Week files from 4shared. I’m working to get them transferred to another site now, it’s just taking some time.
