Spring has sprung, and this is a time of rebirth. It is also a great time to study insects! Today I’m releasing my Insects Do-a-Dot Printables to support any learning your children are doing related to insects. These printables would go great with a preschool or kindergarten insects unit study.
Over time, my kids and I have studied a variety of insects including ladybugs, butterflies, silkworms, and ants. Although insects may not be the warmest or fuzziest creatures to study, they play a very important part in our ecosystem and they have fascinating life cycles. Plus, kids seem to be fascinated by them, especially when they can be observed up close. With my Insects Do-a-Dot Printables, you can capitalize on your kids’ interest in insects while also supporting their learning at the same time.
Note: For more insect resources, activities, and printables, please see my Insects Unit Study page. For more do-a-dot printables, see my do-a-dot printables page. Plus, see my post sharing 15+ ideas for using do-a-dot printables for learning.
My Insects Do-a-Dot Printables pack contains 23 pages of do-a-dot worksheets featuring ants, bees, beetles, butterflies, cockroaches, crickets, flies, and ladybugs. As kids complete these worksheets, they will work on one-to-one correspondence, shapes, colors, patterning, letters, and numbers.
The activities in my Insects Do-a-Dot Printables pack are designed to be completed using do-a-dot markers.
The thick size of do-a-dot markers makes them easy for little hands to grasp, so do-a-dot markers are wonderful for young children who have not yet developed the fine motor skills to use a pencil or crayon. However, do-a-dot markers can certainly be enjoyed by older kids as well.
What should you do if you do not own do-a-dot markers? Obviously you can purchase them, but there are still plenty of ways to enjoy my Circus Do-a-Dot Printables without do-a-dot markers. In this post I’ve shared lots of ways to use do-a-dot printables to support your children’s learning, with plenty of ideas for kids from toddlers through elementary school.
Here is a sneak peak at the activities included in my Insects Do-a-Dot Printables pack:
The activities in this pack cover a range of skills, which means that these do-a-dot worksheets are likely to appeal to toddlers, preschoolers, and early elementary students. Plus, if you borrow some ideas from my post on 15+ ideas for using do-a-dot printables for learning, you may find ways to use these printables with even older kids!
