In kindergarten Core Knowledge, we study many many poems and nursery rhymes. Ladybug Ladybug goes so well with learning the letter Ll, but I think it is a very scary and sad poem. It always disturbed me as a child... the house is on FIRE! The children are GONE! Ugh... I prepared my students before we read it... and then I showed them how we were going to illustrate it! We used red ink and our fingerprints to make ladybug bodies along the L and l. Then, we added legs and spots.
