There are so many great books – but these are just some of the ones I set out in bookshelf for the kids to read through, and that I might read throughout the week.
For small groups – I’ll use Reading A-Z, like usual. I pretty much use their books all the time because I can find thematic books all kinds of different levels.
Another listening center will be to listen to BookFlix Diary of a Spider and a Spiderling Grows Up.
Throughout the week, we work through vocabulary – this one is one of my favorites “camouflage” – giving them cut outs of different color spiders and they have to think of a way to camouflage their spider.
Then they start writing out their research.
One of the crafts we do, if we have time, is create their own spider webs and spiders – you’d be surprised at how hard making those spider webs are! But I love how they come out.
We like to throw in some math in there every so often too.
Ooh! And some poetry! We work on rhyming, verbs, adjectives, and of course fluency!
