We just had a huge hailstorm so after I went to check on my plants & found this little beauty on one of my apple trees. She‘s the biggest ladybug I‘ve ever seen, about the size of a 5c coin. Does anyone here know which species she is? #gardenersoflitsy

Soubhiville So shiny! I haven‘t ever seen one quite like that. 2y
rachelm No idea!! Look at that little dude 2y
Lizpixie @Soubhiville me neither! I think it‘s called a Harlequin Lady Beetle or Asian Lady Beetle. It‘s the first time I‘ve ever seen one myself. @rachelm she‘s gorgeous isn‘t she?🐞 2y

This Bug‘s Life ladybug 🐞 doesn‘t look too grouchy! I remember back in elementary school when this came out, it became our rainy day video for a couple years. 🐜

Kindergarten has The Grouchy Ladybug as their current read-aloud of the week, and they love it!

This ladybug is just out to pick a fight... until he realized most animals are much bigger than him!

My students love the repetitive language and have been eager to say the story on their own. Great for retelling and recognizing characters!

And look at those cute ladybug plates...

Texreader Awwww. I love crafts that go along with books! 🐞 (edited) 3y

Another picture book for #bbrc and this is for “G”. I like the Grouchy Ladybug cause of the unique visuals with the clock and each page getting bigger to accommodate the animals ladybug meets. #a2z #picturebooks

Mehso-so

In this fictional book by Eric Carle, readers quickly follow alongside a grouchy ladybug who doesn‘t have any manners and who thinks it‘s better than anyone else. This is a great book for teaching time, manners and friendship. UDL 9.3 allows students to develop self assessments and reflections, while recording lectures on audio tapes would be helpful for students who aren‘t exposed to English very much (EL 21). #UCFLAE3414SuB18

prissy.mooney www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/grouchy-ladybug-lesson-plan/ offers to lesson plans teaching children about animals and their sizes. These lesson plans make way for great extension lessons, and you could even use the book “Actual Size” too! 4y
RossoS Sounds like a good book🙌🏼 It‘s great that your resource provided ways to incorporate math. It‘s always fun incorporating other subjects 4y
DrSpalding Teaching strategy would you use…? I think it makes a great read aloud and storytelling. 4y

I saw this dark chocolate bar out shopping with my sister and immediately thought of one of my favorite Littens! Her opinion, not mine! I think her heart is too big for that! ❤️❤️😄😄. Any guesses who I‘m thinking of today! Hint: I hope she‘s feeling better! 😘

Clean air above, polluted air below.... (somewhere between Jaisalmer and New Delhi). Our flight was delayed because the military closed the runways (go figure) and it‘s cascaded into chaos with our connecting flights but we are now in Delhi waiting for our connection home. On the bright side; there is tea. On the down side, we‘re all sick from the constant, high air pollution and now I can‘t spring the kitty tonight but I just want to get home.

ElleSkel Hang in there! 5y
GlassAsDiamonds @Elle_Skeldon thanks!!! Much hanging tonight, much! (And apparently my books are waiting at home). Just got to survive this airport and the next flight. Cross *everything*! 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻 5y

The Grouchy Ladybug is a charming F book written and illustrated by Eric Carle. This would be a great addition to any classroom library and would be perfect for S in the classroom. I found a great lesson plan at https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/grouchy-ladybu...

MakenzieT EL-30 Encourage the use of diagrams and drawings as aids to identify concepts and seeing relationships
UDL-1.3 Offer alternatives for visual information

DeannaT96 Okay I love this book and the resource lesson plan you found! It would absolutely make this book even more fun and engaging! Love it! 5y
DrSpalding Make sure you provide a bit more of a summary of what this book is about. You can't do much better than citing Scholastic as a resource. Nice. 5y

The first thing that came to mind for #CreepyCrawlies was the ten plagues of Egypt. But I don't remember what books I've read that have featured that. So here are some bug books I've read to the kids.

This AF book is a great read for students age 3 to 7! It's about a grouchy ladybug who is looking for someone to fight no matter how big, every hour someone new is starting a fight with her till she gives up. Refinery recommend for a read - aloud! https://www.pinterest.com/sharonlayjones/book-the-grouchy-ladybug/ #UCFLAE3414su17

DrSpalding This book helps teach concepts of time too! Read it aloud before a math lesson. 5y

The book the Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle is just another one of his many amazing accomplishments. In this animal fantasy book, the ladybug thinks she is the strongest one yet and challenges other animals to duels. Eventually learning her lesson. This is perfect for first or second graders. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/grouchy-ladybu... I. Love. Scholastic lesson plans!! #ucflae3414sp17

DrSpalding We witnessed a wonderful story telling that incorporated teaching children how to tell time. Super choice. 6y
Langlied Great book selection! This would make for a great activity on telling time! 6y
LaurenMcl This is a favorite of mine and I love how students will chime in after seeing cerrain repetitive lines in the story. 6y
