What is an Insect? Free book

Oh, my goodness I am so enjoying my Spring Break!  But what do we all do even when we're on vacation?  We work on school stuff.  It drives me slap crazy that I can't shut the teacher part of me off!  Any who, I'm gearing up for my insect unit next week and I'm working on a few new things so I thought I'd share.  Click on the butterfly above to download an emergent reader to help your little entomologists learn all about insects.  I will be uploading a few more freebies at the end of the week.  
Enjoy the rest of your week!

  28. I can relate about not being able to shut off our teacher brains. True Story... As we were heading back to the north Georgia mtns from Florida today, we were coming up I-75 and as we came by the Warner Robbins exit, I couldn't help but think of you and how you've been blessed with teaching success at TPT. All of a sudden...BAM...a huge rock hit my windshield and made a big hole bringing me back to reality. Thank goodness my hubby was driving and thank goodness for people like you that I can learn from. I'm going to need that TPT $$ for a new
