The Grouchy Ladybug
We recently read The Grouchy Ladybug and decided to do an activity with the book. Once we read the book, I used the Cricut machine to cut out twelve ladybugs. I then proceeded to put the same number of dots on each ladybug as their order. The first ladybug got one dot, the second ladybug got two dots, etc.
Once they all had the appropriate number of dots, I laminated them for durability. We then re-read the book and used the appropriate ladybug for each page. We have also used the ladybugs for just general math/counting practice and it has worked out great.
This is a display table that we set up in our office lending library. If you are in the Lexington, KY area, come on by and see.
