This What Kind of Ladybug Are You? lesson plan also includes:
As a class, read different sentences prepared by the teacher, identifying the punctuation that is needed for the appropriate expression. In small groups, have each child assume the role of one or more character in The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle, using the reading expression strategies. As a culminating activity, each person writes a journal entry about their mood; a short assessment checklist is included.
