We read lots of nonfiction books about spiders and talked about non-fiction text features.
We also did this little spider craftivity. They were given an 8 die cut for the spider body, 8 legs and 2 googly eyes. They could arrange the legs however they wanted....the tradition 4 on each side, or 2 on one side, 6 on the other...etc. Then they wrote a number sentence below to match their picture.
We also read lots of nonfiction books about bats. We made a big list of bat facts and they got to write some facts on these bats they made...
We hung them upside down in the corner of the room and called it our "bat cave" haha.
My kids LOVED using these eyeball pointers during reading time! I just hot glued a googly eye onto a popsicle stick. Easy!
Hope you all had a SPOOKtacular Halloween!
