Kindergarten Pinch Pot Lady Bugs

Kindergartners started this lesson by talking about shape vs form.

We then read "The Grouchy Ladybug" by Eric Carle.

Step by step using model magic students first made a pinch pot, they added a head and pulled up antennas, and poked in eyes with the back of a pencil.  They then divided the pinch pot with a line to make the wings and by rolling small balls and flattening them on the ladybugs body they made spots.

Students were then able to paint there ladybug choosing one color: yellow, red, or green.  They used black to paint the spots and head.

I apologize these little guys don't seem to photograph well and the pictures certainly do not do them justice!
