Folder Articulation Activity

This one takes some work, but I used it as a warm-up for many weeks in a row. When the students and I were tired of it, I packed it up with this note and sent it home for homework.

Spiders

I must confess, I love spiders. I actually do a spider unit in March, far from the fall/Halloween stuff, since there is so much of that already. I don't really have a favorite picture book; I sometimes use Diary of a Spider. Here are some photos of the activities I do:


1. The upper left worksheet is from my favorite cut-n-paste artic workbook.

2. The lower left is a spider game I adapted from Speechtx.com Once again, very simple, but they love it!

3 & 4. On the right is a spider blank that I drew then copied onto cardstock. The kids complete the spider with cut out black legs, bingo stampers and googly eyes.



The picture above shows one of my favorite booklets to make. The cover and story are adapted from a Mailbox activity. Either I or the kids draw a tub, chair, etc, then use a thumbprint or a stamper to make a spider. Then they say the sentence.
