They had to draw a spider....I have to say, some of them totally creep me out!! I have some pretty good artists. Next, they had to write details about the spiders that they learned from the book we read this morning. Each detail was put on a note card.
Then they glued the note cards around the edges of the poster. The spokes of the web came next. One from each card to the spider (in the center). Then they just made the lines to make the web.
I also wanted to share about a great blog and fun idea I saw. The Schroeder Page has lots of super ideas. She just recently posted about using laser fingers as props to keep the kids engaged. Go read about it here:) I got super excited about this idea and filed it in the "remember to do this Tara" file in my head. Well, yesterday I went to Dollar Tree because
my kids must be eating my dry erase markers I never have enough dry erase markers and what do I see as I'm waiting to check out????????????
I used them today and my kids thought I was wonderful!! I have also decided to use them with my guided reading groups. I bought enough so each student can use one as a pointer. Kinda fun:D
P.S. Thanks for all the sweet comments and well wishes for my daughter. You guys are amazing and so supportive:) She is doing well. She has several hours of physical therapy a day and working hard to get back on the court! She's out of her boot already and in a wrap:) Thanks all:))
