This Character Set is to be used in conjunction with the Monkey Mitt and easily attaches to the fingers with Velcro. The set includes 5 Ladybugs, the words to the Rhyme and 6 Activity Suggestions.
The Words to the Rhyme:
One little ladybug sipping on some dew
Another flew in and then there were two
Two little ladybugs resting in a tree
Another flew in and then there were three
Three little ladybugs crawling on the floor
Another flew in and then there were four
Four little ladybugs flying ‘round a hive
Another flew in and then there were five
Five little ladybugs painted black and red
One by one they went to bed
5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1 there’s none
Goodnight. Sleep Tight.
Don’t let the bedbugs bite.
Sample Activity Suggestion: Cut a piece of red poster board in to the shape of a ladybug. Outline in black and add six to eight 4” black dots – 3 to 4 on each wing. Laminate and lay it on the floor. Divide your class in to teams or play individually. Give each child 3 bean bags to toss at the ladybug. They should try to land their bags on the dots. Determine ahead of time the point value(s). To teach right and left, draw a straight, black line down the middle of your ladybug and instruct them to aim for the dots on the right or the left side.
