Has anyone got any ideas on a bulletin board display for the hungry caterpillar.I'm really really stuck and need to do a good display for an upcoming school inspection

Many thanks

How about an interactive flannel /magnetic BB?
One idea:
At the top put days of week cards and on the bottom food name cardsand children graph the amounts of food that the caterpillar ate on each day of the week using moveable food shapes.

Food templates could be coloured, laminated and cut out with velcro (or magnetic strips) on the back.
Templates can be found at

For lots of poems /songs to display on cards around room http://www.thevirtualvine.com/themes.html

At the top of the BB, display a large twisting caterpillar made from as many colored circles you have room for (children to cut out?) with- pipe cleaners for antennae and black circles for eyes.

Idea 2
Use egg carton caterpillars and coffee filter butterflies ( see http://www.thevirtualvine.com/themes.html) . Draw a tree branch onto a piece of brown bulletin board paper and cut out. Attach the branch to your board.with blue or green background. Have the students create cocoons/chrysalis from brown paper lunch bags by wadding them up and smoothing them out. (They should no longer be stiff, but soft and pliable.) Put the caterpillars into the cocoon and staple them onto the branch on the bulletin board. One day when the students are out of the room, swap butterflies for some of the caterpillars. When the students are out of the room, tear holes in some other sacks and pull some caterpillars through slightly as if they're emerging from their cocoons. Have some butterflies scattered around the room.



Have an interactive Powerpoint of the story on the class computers for children to work at ( First right click on the title page and then 'edit slides' . Chn need to click each slide on the leftside in turn and then click the blank boxeson the slide to be able to put in text )

You could also copy each slide onto a Word document, print and laminate and display on the board or have them for worksheets. Children could put word cards (also laminated with velcro/magnetic strips on the backif used on a BB) in the blanks.

Lots of ideas are under April at:
