A first grade worksheet to practice writing adjectives. Have your students come up with and write an adjective to describe each of the nouns. Then have them draw a picture.
from Kathleen A. Carpenter
Can be used as a craft, or to program with learning center activities...unlimited possibilities!
Copy onto oaktag/cardstock paper.
Color the head black, wings red with black spots. Leave body below neck uncolored if using for learning game.
Cut out the body and the two wings. Use a brass brad fastener to poke a hole through the black dot on each piece.
Position the wings on the body with the straight edges along the "neck" and the rounded edges along the curve of the body. The 3 black dots should line up on top of each other so one brad fastener will go through and fasten all three parts together. Insert the brad and fasten beneath the ladybug. This allows the wings to swing open, exposing the ladybug body beneath.
Program a wing on each ladybug with a numeral 0-10 or higher. Draw the corresponding number of dots on the body under the wings. Children read the numeral, then check their answer by swinging open the wings to count the dots.
Program with upper and lower case letters of the alphabet for drill. Put one case on outside wing, other case under wings.
Program with letter of alphabet and picture of object with corresponding letter sound.
Write a cloze activity on the wing, with the missing answer/word hidden under the wing. (sight words, vocabulary, math, etc.)
Write riddle or curriculum related question on the wing, write the answer under the wings.
Older children could write (copy or compose) a short poem under the wings. Or they could write a short response to a prompt fitting your current Spring or insect theme.
