L is for Ladybug


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.
