The Very Hungry Caterpillar Maths Tuff Tray Activity Pack

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Maths Tuff Tray Activity Pack

Our tuff tray pack contains everything you need to set up a fun and engaging The Very Hungry Caterpillar themed tuff tray. There are maths and modeling opportunities in this tray, as the children will be able to roll and count as they calculate one more and how many altogether.
Our 2-page planning document covers the purpose, key vocabulary, resource checklist, curriculum links to the early learning goals, observations to make, and questions to ask as well as a photo reference for ideas of things to include in your tuff tray.
Strengthen finger muscles by manipulating the dough
Practise and refine counting skills
Embed number recognition
Understand cardinality (order of numbers) using number tracks
The pack also includes a double-sided challenge card to stand in the tuff tray, a set of maths vocabulary cards, a great play dough recipe card, number tracks 0 to 10, number cards, and playdough mats.

This activity has great links to communication and language, maths, and PSED through collaborative working and sharing resources.
