If you have a little one who has a favorite book, you know what it’s like to read the same book over and over and over again! When my preschoolers are loving a new book, we could read it 2-3 times in a morning. Recently, we have been reading Eric Carle’s, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and we are all slightly obsessed. Between the repetitive text, counting the fruit as we read, and the brilliant illustrations, my preschoolers cannot get enough of this book.
While planning activities in my classroom, I have been working our favorite hungry caterpillar into all learning areas. To help strengthen fine motor skills, my preschoolers have been helping the caterpillar munch through fruit with a hole punch (one of their favorite fine motor tools!).
