Ladybug Math

I love these plastic ladybugs that I found several years ago from Oriental Trading!  Unfortunately, they don't sell them anymore, but you could use ladybug erasers, foam shapes, beads, etc.

This is a simple addition activity that my kindergarten students loved.  Just spin, count out your ladybugs onto the leaves, then say and/or write an addition problem.

I recently pulled this out for Mr. Two (who is three) and modified the activity.  I spun one spinner and Mr. Two the other.  We counted our ladybugs onto our leaves, then pointed to the group that had more (or less).
