labelling of a spider. Use Eric Carle's The Very Busy Spider for literacyI had the kids make a “Spider Sandwich” poem using 3 verbs and 3 adjectives that are “sandwiched” between the word SPIDER. After writing their poems, then paint their hands to make little handprint spiders. I LOVE handprint art!!! And I used reinforcement stickies for the eyes.
