Creepy Crawlies

Okay ya'll!  The weather in our part of Texas has been bee-u-ti-ful!! It is sooo pretty outside that I have spring fever....BIG time!  I think my kiddos do too! I'll admit....we took an extended recess today!  :)
These are the bluebonnets behind our school!!!!  Sooo pretty!
So....we talked about praying mantises today!  We watched an animal planet youtube on them and charted our info.

Updated pic of my spring mural outside my room.

Close up of the cute praying mantises we made....Deanna Jump!

We finally finished our word family ant hills.....It has taken us awhile because they have been working on them as time allows.

They created their own individual ant hill books to take home. This had a few from the display and a few they had to think up on their own.

They created their own bugs to graph with....They had to have everything an insect has to have.

Happy Spring!
I am going to go enjoy this beautiful weather!

*** Our April SMARTboard calendar file HOPEFULLY will be uploaded tomorrow afternoon!!!! We are still working on fun pages!  HOPEFULLY I will finish tonight!!!

  4. I would LOVE it if you would consider a guest post on my science blog for next week. I will be at a conference and I have some great guest bloggers. I think my science friends would love these anchor charts! Let me know.

  5. oh my goodness! SO many ideas! I can't wait to do some of these projects with my class. We did butterflies last week and will keep doing bugs for a little longer. Thanks!
