Creepy Crawly Spiders... and FREEBIES

I actually despise spiders, well any insects to be honest, but I cant negelect my students of all the spider fun that is out there.  My students are always so engaged when learning about nonfiction topics.  Below are just some of the fun spiders activities we did this past week.  

We read a ton of spider books. 
We also did a close read of Little Miss Muffet.
The Little Miss Muffet close reading activities are part of our Close Reading with Nursery Rhymes unit. Click the picture below to check it out.
During our close reading we highlighted rhyming words.  
Defined new vocabulary words.

and answered comprehension questions..

We also visualized Little Miss Muffet and wrote the word that suggested her 
Common Core Standard RL.1.4.. (Identify words and phrases in stories or poems that suggest feelings or appeal to the senses.) We visualized Little Miss Muffet and wrote the word that suggested her feelings. 
(This Freebie is at then end of the post)

We also read Little Miss Spider and discussed her character traits.. (freebie at end of post)
We also made these paintings of spiders and wrote some interesting facts about spiders.

You can get ALL the materials above, yes, even our Little Miss Muffet Close Reading Activity, by clicking the link below. =)

  1. Thank you so much for the generous freebies! I will definitely be filing this away for next year! LOVE your selection of kid-lit for spider studying. I used to despise the 8-legged things, too, but the more we study them, the better I feel about them. Maybe you will, too, soon:) Happy Halloween!
