Buggy Fun {with a freebie & a giveaway}

Whew... spring break is flying by! I've been spending time working on my master's class, having some fun...

like...

Going to Winter Jam  and hearing a bunch of great bands for only 10 bucks! What a deal! This is the last band on the line up...Skillet. They put on a great show with their musicians on moveable stands, and their drummer on a rotating platform and fire that burst out too! We were close enough to feel the heat. CrAzY! 



That was Sunday night and then on Monday I headed off to Chicago for some shopping fun with my mom and delicious Snickers cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory. 


Then, yesterday it's been a tradition to take the youth group to Lake Michigan. It was in the forties yesterday and very windy, but the sunset was beautiful!




Now to the freebie...before starting my spring break I posted a new unit on TpT called: Ladbugs & Other Insects: {Math and Literacy Fun!} I can't wait to use it with my firsties. We'll be reading lots of books about ladybugs and doing a little writing craftivity from the pack. 

I found some great fiction ladybug books too and one of them is ...

The Very Lazy Ladybug

Anyways, I have some freebies posted here: Lazy Ladybug Freebies {just click the link!} that you can check out to go with this book.








I hope that you'll be able to use these in your classroom! Now to the giveaway part...I'm going to giveaway my newest unit:

I follow your cute blog and I LOVE creepy crawly buggies. Each makes such a big impact on our lives. I love caterpillars, butterflies, and yes, even spiders. :o)

I follow you! I am good with anything that is NOT a spider. I would probably have to go with a stickbug for my favorite though.

I do follow your blog.

I would say a praying mantis is one of my favorites - even after 100s of them hatched in my classroom when I taught further south!
