The Grouchy Ladybug

this is the book we are starting with

we chose this book since we were finishing

with the letter L, I though it goes great with it

specially this time of the year, when we are finding

quite a few ladybugs in the garden.

As we are reading this book

we decided to make this craft

that I found in my files

this ladybugs made out of paper plates

have the number hidden underneath the wings

which match to the number of dots (stars)

that the ladybug has

great way to practice numbers!

Then comes some puzzles that I found in the net

and here you'll find the second puzzle

I also have some sizing ladybugs in my files

children can put these 6 ladybugs

from smallest to biggest

or biggest to smallest to practice sizing

and also some ladybugs counters

my daughter loves to put these ones

inside an empty plastic jar

challenging herself to count to 30

I also have a ladybug rebus poster
that for some reason the picture is not coming out
the right way in blogger, but is a really cute poster
to help them read :)

Happy to be part of The Preschool Corner
Summer Challenge


  1. I love the idea you did with the Paper plate Ladybugs. We made some but I did not think of making them with numbers and matching dots (stars) That is a wonderful way to incorporate Math.

    And we love Ladybugs too!

  2. I just found your blog through a Well Read Child, and it's absolutely awesome. We are going to have a Ladybug hour this weekend :) I will stop often now!
