The Grouchy Ladybug


Remind children that ladybugs hibernate in cold weather. They hibernate under rocks, leaves, or in crevices. Read to children The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle. After reading, bring out a clock face with movable hands. Read the story again and let each child take a turn at moving the clock hands each time the ladybug in the story lands.
