L is for Ladybug or Ladybird, depending on your continent.Use a large green diamond as a leafy perch. A medium sized red circle makes a bug’s body and a smaller black circle makes a head. Children can draw antennae from the head, semicircles on the bug’s body for wings and his iconic black dots. Paste a scrap from your hole-puncher to make the eye.
Most children have a schematic understanding of ladybugs. Therefore, this may be a good project in which to introduce and use non-fiction literature. Explain to children that non-fiction books are books about true facts. As you read-aloud from the non-fiction text, point out text features such as captions and section headings.
