Insects & Timelines

Beware insects!! My class and I will be delving into our insect unit for the next 2 weeks. We will go on a bug hunt and capture some bugs. We will study them, and then let them free again. I am linking up with Deedee Will's Peek at my Week Linky. There are many freebies (not my own) that a variety of teacher bloggers have created that I have linked to in my lesson plans. Just click on my lesson plan pics to download my plans and find those fabulous freebies.

I am also linking up with Collaboration Cuties for their Social Studies Mentor Texts Linky. Last week, I worked on timelines with my kindergartners. We used these books that I had bought through Scholastic Book Clubs as a set.
 
 
 
 In math, we were working on our calendar unit. So our timeline social studies standard worked well during our math time. They were already familiar with number lines. Here are some samples of their Morning, Noon, and Evening timelines.
