A Sign of Summer- INSECTS! UPDATED

Today is a whooping 63 degrees and cloudy! Sure doesn't feel like Summer is around the corner in my region.  I've been patienlty waiting for Spring and only had a few days of it.  This Winter was brutal and it seems like Spring just passed us by, only for a short visit.  I'm wondering if Summer is just around the corner-I mean it's June already!!!  :)

Well, a sure sign of Summer is watching insects crawl and creep around.  To celebrate the upcoming summer months-if and when it arrives-I made a couple of activities.  One is an Insect Acrostic, the other is a booklet about grasshoppers.  I hope you can use it and I'm really crossing my fingers that I'll see that sun shine really soon!  Click on the links for the activities.  Hope you all have a great,
fun-filled summer season!

Hi Everyone,

I haven't been blogging for a bit-life can get really hectic!  I wanted to share something with all of you.  I found this cute website, which has useful templates for making nifty  power point games. Create your own games and use your own content for your students.  It's such fun!  Below is a link to the website and I have also added a game I created, on power point, utilizing one of their templates.  Hope you can use it.
