It's October, and time to start thinking about Halloween! Today we read about spiders, but none of them were the scary kind! We read Eric Carle's The Very Busy Spider who had no time to play or visit with friends because he was so busy. The Roly-Poly Spider by Jill Sardegna was about a spider who tricked his prey into coming into his sticky web. Miss Spider's Tea Party by David Kirk was about poor, misunderstood Miss Spider, who only wanted to have friends to tea! And the Itsy Bitsy Spider was an adaption of the poem we know about the spider going "up the water spout!"
Then we set to work weaving webs on paper plates with yarn, then making unique spiders for each!
