Spring is approaching, which means we will soon be seeing leaf buds on the trees, flowers in bloom, and the return of ladybugs to our gardens.
Ladybugs are a super fun topic to study with young children. I did a ladybug unit with my kids a few years back, and it was a wonderful experience for them. Our favorite part was getting to raise our own ladybugs in our Ladybug Land and watch their life cycle unfold.
With the approach of spring, I thought it would be a good time to create a Ladybug Do-a-Dot Pack for your little ones to enjoy.
Note: You’ll find more resources for learning about ladybugs and other insects on my Insect Unit Study page.
My Ladybug Do-a-Dot Printables pack contains 19 pages of ladybug do-a-dot worksheets. As kids complete these worksheets, they will work on one-to-one correspondence, shapes, colors, patterning, letters, and numbers.
The activities in my Ladybug 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 Ladybug 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 Ladybug 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!
