Preschoolers and kindergarteners will love counting the brightly colored ladybugs in this fun bug themed math center. Include this free printable in your insect learning unit to combine math and fine motor strengthening this Spring. Counting 1 to 20 will be so much fun!
Counting 1 to 20 Ladybugs Setup
For this activity you will need:
If you don’t have the materials needed, don’t sweat! You can get it delivered to your doorstep really quickly with Amazon Prime. You can get a 30-day free trial here.
Print the pages according to the size you want and cut them into individual cards. I suggest to laminate them for easy and repeated use. Your students will look at the number of ladybugs shown and practice counting 1 to 20.
This is a simple but effective activity that also incorporates a fine motor aspect into your insect learning unit. When your student uses the wooden peg to clip their answer, they are strengthening their fine motor muscles.
You could make this a self-correcting activity by placing a small sticker at the back of each card on the correct answer. Once they have marked theirs, they can flip the card over and check it themselves. They’ll love the independence and you’ll love the quiet time to yourself!
