The Very Hungry Caterpillar



This resource is aimed at junior/middle pupils or SEN pupils at the beginning of literacy work on comprehension. It is based on the picture book “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle. Either the pupil reads the story themselves, or the teacher/SNA/supporting adult reads the story to the pupil.

Cut up the sheets into thirteen separate cards and laminate them individually. Either the pupil or teacher/SNA/supporting adult should read the question at the top of each card and the pupil should then place a clothes peg on the correct answer on the bottom of the card. The questions could be answered at the end of the reading of the story, or they could be answered during the reading of the story, whichever the teacher deems most suitable for the particular pupil.

This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but can understand a story. It is a way for them to demonstrate their comprehension of the story. It is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.
