The Grouchy Ladybug

This is a story about a ladybug who is very grouchy. The story using comparative time and telling time on a clock to show the different things that make the ladybug grouchy.

Some lesson plans include:

  • Math- telling time on the clock. This is an excellent book to reinforce time telling. Each page has a clock on it. Students can have small clocks at their desks and set the time on their clock that matches the one in the story.
  • Phonics-Make a large ladybug and put a black line down the middle. Give each student a black dot. If they hear the g sound in a word at the beginning of the word place the dot on the left, if they hear it at the end place it on the right.
  • Writing-Make a list on the board of things that make the students grouchy. Have them pick one thing and write it onto story paper. Draw an illustration that goes with their sentence.
  • Art-Make an insect. Materials- empty soda can, pipe cleaners, pom poms, felt pieces, googly eyes, glue and paint. Crush the soda cans and paint them green. Add the other materials on to make the can look like a bug.
