Click to preview Spring into Fluency.

I want to say a BIG shout out thank you to Christine for allowing me to adapt her ladybug art. With some awesome tweaks, teachers do not have to trace anything. Plus, now the back and front is filled with their learning so it is a great project to hang from the ceiling or a laundry line.

There is a blog post that you might want to accompany this lesson. It has real photographs of ladybugs, songs, and a movie clip. To go to this "Teach With Me" blog post click {here }.

Hi I love your units! I have recently purchased your Compound Word and Easy Ecology Units. I have been able to download both units with the exception of the Smart Art components in BOTH units. I have tried on different printers and different dates. My printer reads, "Invalid Request". Please advise. Thank you! I was really hoping to do these activities by next week.
P.S. I also purchased your Chinese New Year Unit several months ago and never had trouble downloading the art.
