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.
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 from Susan Jones' King of Ing Unit)
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!
