It's a BUG!

"It's a bug," said father.
"It has wings" said Joe.
Mother said, "Look, six legs!
What else do we know?"

"It eats other bugs.
The harmful ones, you see.
It's also called an insect,"
Said my Grandpa Lee.

Little Jane exclaimed,
"It's red with small black dots."
(Jane is pretty smart
For such a little tot.)

Then we all smiled,
As the bug crawled away.
We called out loud to her,
"Oh ladybug, please stay!"

After learning or reciting this poem, invite students to draw a picture of this bug and give her a name.
