The Very Hungry Caterpillar

We just started a literacy unit on the Very Hungry Caterpillar. Moo is loving this story, and it is simple enough that he sits down with the book and reads it to himself. It's very cute to listen to! He got to this page and exclaimed: "OH mummy! I don't know what his house is called!"

We've been working on this great little maths booklet available from that uses the Hungry Caterpillar as its inspiration. The level was a little too hard for Moo because he can count fairly confidently to 10 but hasn't started linking that to written numbers yet, but he didn't want to be left out. It's perfect for kids that are working on 1 -10.
Interestingly Lamb confidently managed visual patterns where he has difficulties with the oral patterns that Moo excels at.
We'll be doing more Hungry Caterpillar stuff soon, so I'll add links as and when :)
