October {THROWBACK}: Spiders

Those creepy, crawly, sticky web spinning creatures just gross me out but they sure are fun to teach!
This year, we have a new scope and sequence to follow.  So, many of these fun activities I will be parting with, but had to revisit them to share the fun I had last year with you...in hopes that you may take something away!
The third October throwback post is dedicated to the spiders!
We've been studying all about spiders this week. Here's a peek at what our learning looks like.
We recorded our learning on a KWL chart.
 We put alot of what we learned into a spider booklet.
 We wrote spider facts.
 Drew a diagram of a spider and labeled it.

And wrote an acrostic poem using words that describe spiders.
We also put what we knew about spiders into a spiders can/have/are chart. 
We used the organizer to create a friendly spider art activity and sandwich poem!
Click on the picture below to download the organizer.
My little loves were also excited to see our own classroom invader when they came to school this week!

  2. Ok, I was looking for one more writing activity for next week and I think I found it! I love the spider web booklets. I think I'll be spending my weekend cutting them out. ;)

  3. I'm doing my first spider unit this week and this looks great!
