I have a confession...I am NOT a fan of spiders! I don't jump up and down and freak out when I see one, but I'm not a lover. With that being said, this is my first time highlighting these little creatures in my classroom. Spider week was never suppossed to be...It all came about on Friday when I was going through my files for some Halloween activities and I realized I had several spider activities that I have never used. Time to get busy and Spider Week was born!
These are a few of the files I will be using for Spider Week:
1. Spiders by Aimee Salazar is jam packed with so many creative ideas to get the kids excited about spiders. I hope I can fit them all into our schedule. Hmmm...maybe spider week will have to be extended.
2. A Spider Craft and Poem Writing- a freebie from Amy Lemons. We will be practicing our adjectives and verbs with this lesson
3. Spider Sentence Fix from Jamie Rector will help us with our proofreading skills.
We kicked off the week making our spider craft. These will be used to inspire the kids to come up with verbs and adjectives to describe spiders for our poem writing tomorrow. I can't wait to share the final product with all of you!
We are also going to be reviewing parts of speech with this little FREEBIE I created to share with all of you! My kids will be using this during center time this week. It will help them with nouns, verbs and adjectives. The kids will sort the spider cards and write them into the correct categories and then write sentences using the words.
I hope this gets you excited for Spider Week in your classroom too! If you grab this freebie, I would love for you to leave a little feedback love. Thanks so much, everyone! Enjoy!
