With spring coming there are so many wonderful bugs that can be explored. I love to bring in books about bugs and one of my favorites is Eric Carle’s “The Grouchy Ladybug” book.

I also love to have my students create their own ladybug book.  Each child is given a red construction paper circle that they can draw dots and other ladybug features. I then ask the children to finish the sentence:

What is your ladybug afraid of?

A Kitten
A Dog
A Spider
A Pencil
A Crab
All the pages were laminated then put together in a little book for our reading center.  This was done over 10 years ago and I kept it for my own collection.
