  1. Trace the bottom of the bottle cap onto your paper. Cut out 10 green circles and 1 red circle.  (You can also get the free download below to help you with this activity!)
  2. Draw what the Hungry Caterpillar eats on each of the green papers. We did what he ate on the last day (cake, ice cream, pickle, cheese, salami, lollipop, cherry pie, sausage, cupcake, and watermelon).The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle is one of the best seller picture books for children according to Amazon.

  4. Draw the caterpillar’s face onto the red circle. Glue two pipe cleaner antennas to the back of the red bottle cap.
  5. Glue all the foods inside the bottle caps.

When reading the story, add a link to the caterpillar until he is completely full. That’s a lot of food for one caterpillar to eat!

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound ReadingMrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
