Week 21 PBID Question

It's hard to believe we have already completed 20 weeks of the Picture Book Identification Challenge. TWENTY WEEKS! I'm looking forward to all the questions coming up in the future! How about you?

Before we get to this week's picture and question, let me take a moment to welcome some new visitors. Last week I was in Milwaukee for the Wisconsin State Reading Association's annual convention, and I introduced the #PBIDchallenge to a bunch of teachers. So to all the teachers and students checking out the #PBIDchallenge for the first time, welcome! Good luck with Week 21! (Even if it is only Week 1 for you.)

Take a look at this picture. See the ladybug? That's one brave ladybug. Or a not-very-smart ladybug. Or a something-something-else ladybug because it challenged the lobster to a fight! Please answer two questions about the following image.

According to the book, what kind of ladybug is this? Also, at what time did the ladybug challenge the lobster to a fight?

  1. Mrs. Calteux's 3rd graders (Kyle, Aaliyah, and Caleb) read The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle. They found the ladybug to be "grouchy" and he wanted to fight the lobster at 10 o'clock.

  2. It is a grouchy ladybug!! At 10:00, the grouchy ladybug wanted to fight the lobster. :)

    The GROUCHY ladybug.
    At 10:00 wanted to fight the lobster!

  4. It's an aphid eating ladybug, with a grouchy disposition (aka a grouchy ladybug).
    The ladybug challenged the lobster at ten o'clock (which would be in about 10 minutes from right now)

  5. Eli recognized this artwork to be the same as in the Very Hungry Caterpillar. Isabel knew that the author was Eric Carle. We googled his books and found one about a Grouchy Ladybug. The ladybug was grouchy and at 10:00 wanted to fight with the lobster.
