Going Buggy and a {FREEBIE!}

I have truly been enjoying this weekend!  Hope you are all too!
While I was out on my usual shopping escapades yesterday, with my three year old, I came across these adorable multi-coloured pom-poms.  Let me tell you that my three year old, although young, is quite the shopper!  She can pick up anything and tell you exactly why you should purchase it.  Needless to say, I left Walmart and then the Dollar store with a few more things then anticipated - including Disney princess floatation wings, 3 swim goggles and an outdoor paddle play set!!!

Here's what I created with the pom-poms for my kiddies this week.
I've included this game *for free!* in my Mini Unit Going Buggy!  Keep reading to get your free copy.
We wrapped up our Frog Unit and since we talked about insects (which frogs eat), I thought it would be fun to create this mini-unit of insect literacy and math games (like the one in the picture above).
You can click on the picture for your FREE copy!
My students just LOVE to Write the Room.  It is a staple centre during Literacy Centre time.  But they are always wanting to go there!  I'm going to be putting out my Going Buggy Write the Room for the next 2 weeks.
I have had several requests to create a Rainforest Write the Room.  These requests were actually from last month so I apologize for finishing it now but here it is!
I'll give this new Write the Room away to the first 3 people to comment below and tell me what they did this weekend!
Up next...drumroll.....our school-wide Spring into Art Show.  Yes, it's in just over a week so you can imagine how crazy this week will be for us.  We are almost finished our projects, just podging everything and putting the finishing touches on it.  I'll post more pics this week.
Enjoy this beautiful Sunday!

  8. What cute ideas! Thanks for sharing! I worked this weekend on completing my memory books that each student receives at the end of the year. It's a lot of work but in the end it is worth it! I take a lot pictures throughout the year and save certain papers to put in for this books. I have 48 books to complete and now to finish up before June 6th!
    Have a great week!

  10. Love your creations. As soon as we finish ocean we are doing bugs. Your unit will be perfect. Our silk worms are growing, so we have to acknowledge them, even though we are still into the ocean. Same is true of the stick bugs/walking sticks.
    Seems like I need to get on the computer earlier in the day...as pacific coast time is later than mid-west or east coast, by the time I read emails and blogs.
    I am going to try and be an early bird, so maybe i'll win next time.
