Ladybug Letters and Ladybug Spelling Practice

 

Preparation:

Make enough letters for each letter of the alphabet you are learning. I did one for each uppercase and one for each lowercase. Laminate. Put a small strip of masking tape on the backs of each ladybug. On each piece of tape, write one letter.

Games:

Ladybug Letters, Variation 1: Lay the ladybugs on the floor with the letters down. Take turns picking one. Flip it over and tell what letter is on the back. If you are right, you get to keep the ladybug. If you are wrong, put the ladybug back.

Ladybug Letters, Variation 2: Lay the ladybugs on the floor with the letters down. Take turns turning over two, trying to find a match (A a, B b, C c, etc). When you find a match, you get to keep the ladybugs.

Ladybug Spelling: Instead of writing a letter on the masking tape, write a spelling word. Have your child pick a ladybug and hand it to you. You read the word, and have your child spell it back to you. If they are right, they can keep the ladybug. If they are wrong, the ladybug goes back into the pile.

*These are great games for Center activities at school!

**You could probably do this with math facts and numbers, as well! Maybe even sight words.

***It would be fun to say, “Ladybug, ladybug in a dish. Which of the ladybugs do you wish?” as you pick the ladybugs.
