Build receptive understanding of “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” with our sequencing board! This 3-step “first, then, last” board builds on expressive communication while giving opportunities to discuss the story more easily by breaking it down into three simple steps. You can simply cut out the caterpillar clip art and have your little learners paste them to the board, or for more longevity, we suggest laminating your board and adding velcro for lots and lots of play!

You will get 7 strips to use at various times for a total of 105 pieces of fruit to hole punch! Have your little one use a hole punch to practice putting “caterpillar bites” in each piece of fruit. This will keep your little one entertained for hours!
Use this activity in speech therapy as an exciting reinforcer, whether your client gets to “take a bite” after completing each goal, or 10 “bites” after completing a sequence of goals, the options are limitless.
You can create a “Very Hungry Caterpillar” centre in your classroom where your students can work together to practice their fine motor skills. They will have tons of fun.
You can subsequently talk about the colours that you see, you can count how many bites you took out of each piece of fruit, and you can use the opportunity to re-tell the story “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle.
