Bloglovin Questions

I have been reading many posts about Bloglovin, and July 1st being the final time for Google+Reader? However, I'm lost with all of this. I did join Bloglovin. I don't, however, like the way the widget appears on my blog and can't seem to change it. Need some help there...Questions:
1. Do you have to go to Bloglovin to read the daily blog posts?
2. Can I still get them via email as before?
3. Is it a good thing to link to Facebook with this?
4. If you link to Facebook, is that a separate page just for your blog? Not your personal Facebook page?
5. Are there any other hints on how to get additional blog readers?

I appreciate any help anyone is able to offer!

Butterfly Packet

Sending out my newest design--Butterfly Study Packet. I did this because I have used some of it in the past when I ordered caterpillars from Insect Lore's Live Butterfly Garden Kit. My kids absolutely loved doing the observations--that was great! No reminders at all! The butterfly kit comes with the caterpillars and food. Students couldn't wait to get into the room each day to see what may have happened overnight. They recorded their observations including a drawing. I have added more materials to this packet: a life cycle diagram, life cycle stage sheet, and a vocabulary study. You can also run the booklet's inside page back-to-back to cover however many days you want students to do observations. I love how my kids took ownership for this process. Click on my TPT or TN icons and check the packet out. Enjoy!! Susan

New Product--Bats, Owls, Spiders Research Packet!

Good afternoon! School is out, I'm resting up, playing, and beginning to go back to a normal speed. :-)  I've also just finished my newest product. It's a product I used with my class this past year. I designed it to be more of an introductory research product because so many times kids need guidance as to what to look for when they read. It covers bats, owls, and spiders. Each critter has a cover page and two research pages. You can have students do one report, or you can let them do all three to create a larger product. I have it on my TPT and TN stores. I've included a preview with this post.
Have a great afternoon!!
