That 'Bugs' Me!

Springtime is upon us! at last!! This year I'm even glad to see the bugs that come with it. LOL!  As part of our emphasis on ECRR, I made a set of letters to introduce our buggy theme. There are so many great picture books to use with a bug theme; I Love Bugs! by Emma Dodd; and another good one is Philemon Sturges' I Love Bugs!; or In the Tall, Tall Grass by Denise Fleming. For the toddler/2 yr. old set we are using a popup book, Big Bug, Little Bug by Paul Stickland. 
I have a file folder rhyming riddle to use that I posted last year, The Lovely Ladybug. I have another set that was inspired by Mrs. Andre's Library blog. It's a cute little rhyme by Jean Warren @ Preschool Express; 'Four Little Bugs'. I tweaked the ending a little. Instead of the last 2 lines "They got stuck, all in a bunch. And along came spider, in time for lunch!"  I changed it to "then came a spider with berries to munch, So they all sat down and had some lunch!"   I used Google images for all the pieces, laminated them and added a small piece of velcro to the back and the center front of the web for the fruit. I put the velcro at the tail end of the bugs so that it would look as if they were on the web.  Bugs are a lot of Fun with Friends at Storytime!

  1. That's one serious spider! I like the way you changed the end of the rhyme. Just may need to do this. Thanks ~ jane
