Creepy Crawly Spiders!

I LOVE this time of year.  Fall is by far my FAVORITE season.  I don't get into Halloween too much but I enjoy learning about spiders and bats.  We worked on spiders last week and are learning about bats this week.  Most of the pics I have for you are what we did with spiders but most of these activities will be done again using bats.

Here is our Science display wall and books:

We were also learning about suffixes -ing and -s last week.  (There are more pics later that go along with this.)

Each day of the week we read books about what we're studying.  Here's a little outline of how I like to teach our Science and Social Studies along with writing components.
Mon - labeling
Tue - Describing (adjectives)
Wed - Can, Have, Are chart
Thurs - Take the Can , Have, Are chart and produce our "real" writing
Fri - Art project

We also did this SUPER cute activity! Love it!

Here was our Math center:
~Spider addition using tens frames~

This came from my Bats, Spiders and Ghosts - Oh My! unit
You can check it out by clicking on the pic below.

Bats, Spiders and Ghosts - Oh My!

Not only were we learning about suffix -ing, we were also learning about the ing "chunk".
We just had to talk about the King of Ing!

This is what I was talking about earlier in the post.  I took the suffixes and incorporated them with our study of spiders.  My firsties came up with these verbs.  :)

I hope you are enjoying your week before Halloween!
