Let’s start off with the ladybug handwriting page. It’s a good way for kids to get some handwriting practice by writing the letter Ll and the word ladybug.
They’ll trace uppercase and lowercase Ll’s and the word ladybug with dashed lines to guide them. As kids use repetition to write the letters, they learn what each letter looks like, which aids with letter recognition.
Up next is the label the ladybug worksheet. Grab the scissors so kids can cut out the labels for each part of the ladybug. Once they get them all cut out, they’ll glue them in the correct place.
They’ll finish up the page by coloring in their ladybug! This activity is a great way for kids to practice scissor skills, fine motor skills, and learn more about these cute insects all in one worksheet.
Finally, kids will make their way through the L is for ladybug letter maze by identifying all the Ll’s. This letter recognition exercise is a fun way for kids to learn what uppercase and lowercase letters look like.
Kids will also use their problem solving skills to help the ladybug make its way from start to finish.
These three worksheets will improve important skills all while being entertaining!
