We are continuing with our Very Hungry Caterpillar theme throughout the week. One activity I do every year with this theme is an addition math game. I do this whole group on the first day. Then I make enough for my students to get into groups of two and take turns creating their own addition problems using dice. Then, I put this in a center for students to play. I give my students a die, laminated caterpillars, and a number sentence sheet that has been laminated. Students get a dry erase marker to work the problems. Roll the die and put that number of caterpillars into the first box. Then, roll the die again and put that many caterpillars into the second box. Write down the number sentence and then count the caterpillars together to find the correct answer.
I hope you enjoy this activity! What activities do you do that goes along with The Very Hungry Caterpillar?
