This year has involved a lot of addition practice with my 1st grader. We’ve enjoyed the various themes for addition pages that we’ve had this year and since Spring has arrived, it was the perfect time to add a new ladybug-themed free printable adding to 10 activity to our stash! Jaida loves ladybugs, so this one is perfect for her.

To use:

The student will select an addition fact card and place it on the rectangle with the addition fact representation at the top of the leaf page.

Then, they will collect the amount of ladybugs shown on the card to represent the addition problem and place them on the leaf.

Count up the total amount of ladybugs and find the matching numbered ladybug. Place it on the square with the ladybug to complete the addition problem.

Say the addition problem out loud to help commit it to memory.

I absolutely love these tiny ladybugs that I picked up at Michael’s! They had sticky dots on the back of them, but I easily removed them and just used the wooden lady bugs.

They are perfect for kids who need fine motor practice because they are so small!

You could also use any ladybug buttons or even just red pom poms.

If you want to focus on specific math facts, just remove the extras from the draw pile. This was perfect for introducing addition facts earlier in the year.

  1. I just downloaded this great addition activity, however the lady bug cards with single numerals was not included in the download.

    1. I think that your file did not download all the way. I just checked the file and the numerals are on the last activity page followed by a copyright page.
