    I am doing spiders this week. I have only a few ideas. What type of activities do you do with this theme?

    A must do with my spider theme is Raffi's song Spider on the floor. I give the students a die-cut spider and we act out the song together.

    We also read the nursery rhyme Little Miss Muffet then I have the students act it out. This is a great activity to discuss and practice position words like over, under, beside, and behind.

    I read Miss Spider's tea party last week. This week, the students are going to decorate paper tea cups with paint. Then we will have a "Miss Spider's tea party"...I got the idea for this party from a post on AtoZ a few months back. I will try to find it for you!

    One of my co-workers had the kids make glitter spider webs on a big piece of paper, then they made spiders out of the number eight to emphasize the 8 legs. They came out really cute.
