peg_the_very_hungry_caterpillarThis 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 reads the story to the pupil.

Laminate all of the pages in the resource and cut up into thirteen separate cards. Either the pupil or teacher/SNA should read the question at the top of each card and the pupil should then place a 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.
