Time Flies & New Creepy Crawly Unit

Hi Friends!  
Yes, it's been a while.  I've been wondering about the saying "time flies"...just where does it fly?  I'd really like for it to make a long layover here.  Or even get caught up in bout of bad weather to at least slow it down.  Time.  I really could use more of it.  I have things to start and finish.  I have people to see.  I have things to clean and organize.  Bottom line, I really just need more time! {sigh}

Speaking of flies, my sweet friend Alessia Albanese {I PUFFY heart this girl} of Mrs. Albanese's Kindergarten Class and I have teamed up once again and created a Creepy Crawlies unit.  This unit is full of literacy, math, and science activities and is sure to be educational and fun!
So fly on over and pick up your copy.

How many of you get Monarch Butterflies?  
Well if you do, here is a simple and cheap way to make a 
comfortable and pretty home for them.

Here's what you'll need:
2 durable large paper plates
1-2 yards of tule
pretty spring ribbon
I usually go to Joann Fabrics or Hobby Lobby for the tule $6 for 10 yards (use 40% coupon from mobile app).  Dollar Tree for ribbon $4 and plates $1 for 20.  Total $11.00.  
I have enough supplies to last at least 3 years.

 1. Cut 1.5 yards of tule
2. Fold in thirds
3. Bunch one end and tie

 4. Slide one plate all the way to the end (from the bottom) and staple around the edges

 5. Tie off the other end 
6. Put the second plate on the bottom and staple the edges
7. Find a nice stick or small branch and place inside

 8. Hang from the ceiling (low enough for the Littles to see the action taking place)

Happy Home Building!
