Flannel Friday: Very Hungry Caterpillar

And my last — I hope — flannel from the archives, my very first flannelboard ever: The Very Hungry Caterpillar!

I’ve used this one in countless amounts of programs — Eric Carle storytime, a Very Hungry Caterpillar party, Letter C storytime, and countless others.

The templates were from DLTK, though I did not use their butterfly. I actually wound up free-handing that based on the book. The butterfly is, of course, my favorite piece.

    I had a quick question about your growing readers program. How have you been able to measure it’s success? I am writing a grant to run a program that is in some ways like Growing Readers and was interested in how you gage your progress?
    Thanks

      I’m measuring by return-rate (how often a patron returns) and attendance increase. There’s no way to measure reading gains without testing as a baseline. Also, I’ve written a parent-based survey that we’ll administer shortly after the program ends where parents can provide data about how their child has (hopefully) gained reading skills!
