- fruit pictures (from dltk-teach) printed on card stock
- green yarn
- green button
- The Very Hungry Caterpillar
- Cut out and laminate the fruit pictures. Punch one hole in each piece.
- Cut a four inch length of yarn. Tie a button to one end and wrap a piece of tape around the other end.
I place each piece of fruit on the ground as Lauren and I count them. I give her the "caterpillar" (green yarn). As we read about what the caterpillar eats, Lauren feeds her caterpillar by lacing the yarn through the hole in the fruit. We count each piece as she laces it onto the yarn. Lauren loves this activity and chooses to do it a few times a week.
