OOOOh!  Spiders!!
What do you know about spiders?  Well, my kindergarteners knew a lot about these amazing creatures!  On Tuesday we brainstormed all of the things we knew about spiders.  I wrote each sentence on a colored circle.  Later in the day we added heads and legs to our spider bodies and then attached them with Sticky Tack to the giant web I had painted ahead of time.  They are so funny! I had the web on top of our Reading Hut for about 2 weeks and not one child mentioned it to me.  I'm not sure if they even saw it.  And, I thought they were so observant, lol.  Below are pictures of our "What I Know About Spiders..." web.  Wowie, wow, wow!! This week will be an adventure in the life of spiders.  So many exciting and interesting things to learn!  

 Here is a close up of one of our spiders!
