Spring Fingerplays: Ladybug

Never Hurt a Ladybug

Sung to: "Yankee Doodle"

Ladybugs are in my yard.
Just look at them devour
Those pesky aphids on the leaves
Of Mother's pretty flowers.
Never hurt a ladybug.
We need them in the garden.
Ladybugs help flowers grow
So we must never hurt them.


Ladybug Rhyme

Begin by asking the children to stand several feet from one another.
Ladybug, ladybug, (move fingers)
Let me see your crawl, (crawl slowly on all fours)
Hurry after those harmful bugs (move quickly on all fours)
But be careful, do not fall! (fall over)



Lady bug, lady bug,
How are you today?
Lady bug, lady bug,
Are you going to stay?
Lady bug, lady bug,
Or will you fly away.


Pretty Ladybugs

Sung to: "The Muffin Man"

Ladybug has 1 black spot,
1 black spot, 1 black spot;
Ladybug has 1 black spot,
Pretty ladybug!

Ladybug Fly

Sung to: "Three Blind Mice"

Fly, fly, fly
Ladybugs fly
Fly over here
Fly over there
They fly up high and they fly down low.
Around and around and around they go.
They fly fast, and they fly slow.
Oh, ladybugs fly


Five Little Ladybugs 

Five little Ladybugs climbing up a door
One Flew away then there were four
Four Little ladybugs sitting on a tree
One flew away then there were three
Three little ladybugs landed on a shoe
One flew away and then there were two
Two little ladybugs looking for some fun
One flew away and then there was one
One little ladybug sitting in the sun
She flew away and then there were none

Also Great to use a flannel glove fingerplay.
