We made a Grouchy Ladybug Clock story! It was so much fun. My kids really got into it! First we got out our little play clock and write the numbers around the face of the clock. I showed them how certain numbers are directly across from each other to help them make it a little more even when writing the numbers.
After we made our clock face, we started reading the book. Each page it tells the time the ladybug did something with a little picture of a clock showing that time. So every time it told a time in the book, we found it on our clock and set the play clock to that time. Then we drew a picture of what the Grouchy Ladybug was doing at that time.
Another fun thing we love about this book is the way you see the sun go up and down as the day goes on in the book. It's a great way to teach about the rotation of the earth at the same time!
Even baby bear wanted to get in on the action. He had to have his own plate to color!
