Print off pictures of ladybugs without spots from the internet. Label each ladybug with how many spots needed to be added. Encourage children to add the correct number of spots to each ladybug.
Lady Bug, Lady Bug fly away home. Some ladybugs are black with red spots; some are yellow, orange, pink, and red. Here is a fun Lady Bug logic game that you can make with the children!
Matching Lady Bug Game: Math/logic Children will make their own Lady Bug matching game. This is a teacher directed activity.
Give each child a pair of large circles, two smaller red circles, and two identical strips of white stickers. Let the children construct their two lady bugs. You will need at least 5 sets of similar Lady Bug cards to play the game. You might want to make some extras just in case.
Extension Activity: Now that you have a set of cards, you could use them for a math activity. Separate the cards into two piles. Purchase little Lady Bug manipulates or toys. One child draws a card and counts out the number listed on the card.
What you need:
Have the children paint/decorate the plate then add the face, eyes and mouth. Have them add the spots and help them count how many spots are on their ladybug when they are finished.
