spiders!

We had so much fun learning about spiders!! Here is a look at all the fun we had. I love my door display I copied from Cara over at First grade parade. We read the very busy spider and made text-to-self connections.

I am very busy . . . in kindergarten. Look at that precious invented spelling.

Spider labeling and illustrating spiders like Eric Carle

We brainstormed spider verbs and adjectives. I don't have pictures but we wore spider glyph headbands from Deanna Jump's spider unit and acted like spiders using movement cards from my spider unit. They were jumping, crawling, and creeping around like spiders. We also made spider list poems.

One of our chit-chat messages. We made a spider tree map and then wrote sentences.

While reading the sentences we practiced reading left to right, sweeping back around, and top to bottom.

Here is a sequencing activity from Deanna Jump's spider unit

We learned how some spiders use camouflage to protect themselves from enemies. I saw this on Deanna's blog last year.

We also made a circle map. We put what we know and how we know.

Here is our schema chart

The silly willy spider poem.
We acted out the poem with my huge spider I got from Target.
We also put this in our poetry journal.
This was also seen on Deanna's blog from last year.

I used spiders I found in the Target dollar spot for one-to-one. I made spider mats and haunted house mats. You can find this in my spider unit.


I also used the spiders for positional words. You can also find this in my spider unit.

While in Target I bought a bunch of pumpkin and ghost erasers for non standard measuring.
You can grab my work mats below. I used them in my morning tub stations.
