Another folder story. I found this one through Stories with Ms. Jenna. She links to the original at this website.
The Lovely Ladybug
Let’s play a ladybug color game, I’ll give you rhyming clues.
If you know it, say the name of each color that I use!
The first color for our buggy friend;
Is the color of sunshine…it’s the color yellow!
Frogs in the pond and a fresh snap bean;
Did you guess the color green?
The sky above and the ocean, too;
Such a beautiful color…it’s the color blue!
Strawberry ice cream, come on now, think!
You are right…it’s the color pink!
Grapes for jelly on a PB&J;
Purple is the color that we say!
Pumpkins or basketballs rolling by;
Orange is the color that we now spy.
Fluffy clouds and the moon at night;
Did you say the color white?
Roses that grow in the garden bed;
Are this beautiful color, the color red.
Ladybug, ladybug up in the sky.
Thanks for the fun and now we say, goodbye!
How I Made the Folder Story:
- Cut a large circle out. Add construction paper head and eyes. Draw on antenna.
- Cut out small black circles for dots.
- Place a layer of contact paper down, and put the black dots down. Place a second layer of contact paper to seal the black dots in.
- Use book tape to tape the sides closed.
