Going Buggy!

The title of my post says it all.  I have literally been going buggy.  Between cheerleading tryouts, wrapping up the end of the school year, graduate school, and distributing our school's yearbooks...I haven't slept much!  Been living at school lately! :)  Ha...good news is, this is my last year as Yearbook sponsor.  Hooray!!!  Anyways...I am posting stuff from 2 weeks ago.  This is just a snip it of our insect week.  We had a great time studying bugs.  After reading TONS of nonfiction books, making webs and bubble maps, and watching Brain Pop is what we put together!  My students just LOVEEE creepy crawlies.  Me on the other hand - not so much.  EEK!
We used our fingerprints to make ants and ladybugs.
We made a bee book.  "Here is the beehive, where are the bees?  Hiding quietly, where nobody sees.  Are you sure?  Let's peek in the hive.  One, two, three, four, five...OUCH!!"
  A few Ellison Di Cuts and a paper plate...and wallah! The Life Cycle of a Butterfly. 
Students made a lady bug book and added dots to the front cover.  On the inside, we reviewed positional words and students placed their ladybug to match. 
"I'm beside the cricket."

Sorry I've been such a slacker.  I've got TONS of posts coming soon.  My camera is overflowing with photos.  Happy Weekend! ~Miss E
