FLASH SALE & Spider Fun

It's been a Wacky Wednesday with the full moon!  To add to the wackiness, I have uploaded a 58 page Mega Sight Word pack to TPT and it is just $4.00 until I wake up Thursday morning!  And I didn't stop there...all of the items in my store are $4.00 or less until the morning!!!  Don't delay...head on over and stock up on some good stuff!!!

We had fun this week studing insects and spiders!  We used Deanna Jump's insect unit and made the most adorable (am I allowed to call an insect adorable?) praying mantises!  Did you know that praying mantises can be absolutely starving, have an ant walk by and they won't even think about eating it?  Scientists don't even know why they won't touch ants!  Weird!

We also made the spiders I found on Doodle Bugs Teaching blog.  She even has a free template for the spiders!  Stinkin' cute!!! 

I had my kiddos add a writing piece to the spiders to make them look a little more "educational."  I found the writing piece here at Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits.

And I couldn't help myself...adding scrapbook paper to anything makes it that much cuter!  I used glittery black and silver paper to cut out the letters.  : )

Next week...pumpkin fun!!!
