Ladybug Math Fun

I'm enjoying a beautiful spring Saturday.
Last week I was in the midst of state testing, but I was able to add a sprinkle of learning fun into my afternoons.
We did ladybug math!
I hit two concepts: fractions and symmetry

Students received a certain number of ladybugs spots (I did purposely give odd numbers)
The spots were then placed on the wings symmetrically, if possible.
Then the students wrote a fraction sentence and added the spots together.

The ladybugs were placed on a bulletin board with this learning target poster.
