Make a ladybug out of circles. Students will receive: one big black circle, one big red circle, and one small black circle. The students will cut the big red circle in half and glue it on the big black circle with the two halves spread out (these are the wings). Next students will glue the small black circle on top (this is the head). Then students will draw black dots on the wings, and two white dots on the head for eyes. You can also incorporate addition by telling the students to draw 3 dots on one side of the ladybug and four on the other side. The students can then tell you how many dots their ladybug has altogether. S1C4PO3
