spiders and a freebie

I have so many fun classroom activities to post on this blog and I'm way behind. So if you already taught your littles about spiders just tuck this away for next year.
Halloween this year was so fun we made witches brew and did some spooky science with dry ice. My kids loved it!
 We leaned the letter S and made a spider web with all our S words we found around the room. I gave each child a sentence strip and they had to find a S word in the classroom.
We labeled the parts of a spider with a little help from this song

I found this giant harry spider at Target
They drew a spider in their science journal and labeled it.
We made hand print spiders and wrote spider list poems using spider verbs and adjectives.
We read The Very Busy Spider and wrote text to self connections. It says, I am very busy  . . .  in kindergarten. I got this adorable idea from Cara over at the First Grade Parade.
We made a spider bubble map with all our new learning. The labels are from Deanna Jump's spider unit on TPT.
We graphed are you afraid of spiders and made our first pie graph. The recording sheet and spider coins can be found in my spider unit.
I love how Kim Adsit had her kids write the data with her on white boards so I gave it a try. We practiced making tally marks and the symbols for equal, greater than, and less than.
We have been practicing measuring with non standard measurement. He is something I had in one of my morning tubs.
