Update on Mealworms, Easter Unit,and a Freebie!!

Hello everyone!! :)
I am sorry I did not post last week, I was in Houston doing my maternity picture session! I'll tell you all about it at the end of this post :)

These are some pictures of our mealworms that have already turned into pupae! We did not get to see the action, but we sure could see the skin out and those white-alien looking friends! My students are so excited about them that the first thing they do when they come in is to observe them!

These are the skin that we found all around them. I pull them out so students could see them better.

The pupae are all over but I circled some of them so you could have a better view of it :)

This mealworm had just turned into a pupa, it really does look like a white alien!
you could still see the skin near by...

I also wanted to share with ya'll my Chick Craftivity freebie. I created this little friend last year in second grade. We read books and different facts about chicken. Then, my students took notes and wrote about different things they have learned about the life cycle of a chicken. As a said, this was created for second grade; However, this would be perfect for any project you do in your classroom!
If you would like to read more about it click HERE to take you to my last year post :)
Here are some pictures, if you would like to download it, click on Chick Craftivity to take you to my TPT store.

I also wanted to share with ya'll my Easter unit! It's mainly for second grade, but there are some activities that can be use for 1st graders and 3rd graders :)

Fact and opinion, A sequence activity for the book "There was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Chick", Regular Vs. Irregular Past verbs, ABC order activitty.

I have this unit in English and Spanish.. Click on the picture to take you to my TPT store.

Lastly, I wanted to share a picture with you that I took with my very good friend while taking our maternity pictures! She is AMAZING!!! We had a great time catching up (we have not seen each other for more than a year) and posing for this session! I generally have no problem smiling at the camera, but this time wasn't as easy as I thought! I loved that we got to share this time together... the funniest part is that she's also pregnant!!

She works in the Houston area so if you would like to see her facebook page, click HERE

Well friends, this is it for today, I hope this post has been useful and entertaining :)
Have a great week!!! I'll be posting more things next week!Stay tuned!! :)
