I am so enjoying my time teaching The Very Hungry Caterpillar, I had to share this freebie!
I originally saw the inspiration picture on Pinterest, but it just linked to the picture and not the source. Then, the lovely people at Libraryland gave a tutorial, but still no template. Alas, I found that primary teachers needed a template for this hat, and what better way to get it in their hands than as a freebie!
I just cut extra long red construction paper in thirds, and stapled two thirds together to create the base of this headband. You may want to use red sentence strips if you can find them! (and if you can, send that link my way! I’d love to purchase them!)
Now, besides the awesome freebie, I have to brag about my kiddos for a moment. We were super excited to come back from the weekend to discover that our caterpillars have grown big and fat just like the very hungry caterpillar! Take a look below! (Squeamish stomachs, beware!)
However, as you know, most children LOVE this kind of growth and my class was no different.
Check out their awesome Week 2 Observations! What great preschool scientists!
Now, for tomorrow’s work: teaching them that it is not a web, but the exoskeleton shedding! Awesome science!
If you want to try out these observation sheets with your kiddos, buy them here with The Very Hungry Caterpillar No Prep Pack!
Keep your head in the clouds!
