The Very Hungry Caterpillar

The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Eric Carle

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a picture book that follows the life cycle of a caterpillar as it starts by coming out of its egg, all the way to becoming a butterfly. It teaches the days of the week and counting up to five. This would be a good book to read and incorporate a math lesson into it. I would have a picture of a caterpillar labeled with numbers 1-5 written above each circle making up its body. Then students can sequence the story on their own using pictures of the different items and their correct number that the caterpillar ate.
