Flannel Friday: Pretty Ladybug

2 Mar

I was looking for something new to add to my bug storytime when I found Mollie Kay’s Pretty Ladybug flannel on Pinterest. Perfect!

Ladybug looks great, but is missing something – spots! We add each one as well as its corresponding number:

After each one, we sing (supposed to be to the tune of “The Muffin Man” but I couldn’t remember that and used “Johnny Works With 1 Hammer”; “London Bridges” would also work):

Ladybug has 1 black spot,

1 black spot, 1 black spot;

Ladybug has 1 black spot,

pretty ladybug!

(From preschooleducation.com)

Eventually pretty ladybug has 6 lovely spots!

The kids I tried it on today really liked it – especially because the song is simple enough for them to learn quickly and join in easily. Thanks, Mollie Kay for this wonderful idea!

The ladybug is all felt and the numbers are painted on felt squares.

The Flannel Friday roundup today will be hosted by Storytime Katie. And check out our Pinterest page for ALL past flannels!  Also, for your convenience, I’ve added a Flannel Friday page (see top menu) where all MY flannels will be archived. Because, you know, it’s all about me.

Happy flanneling!

    Big Flannel Friday fan here! Loved this idea and so did the kids in my storytime! We sang a slightly different song:

    (to the tune of Alice the Camel Has One Hump)

    This ladybug has – one spot
    this ladybug has – one spot
    this lady bug has – one spot
    what a pretty lady-bug!

    All the way up to 6 spots.

    thanks again!
