1-2-3 Come Do Some Spider-ific Activities With Me!

I guess a lot of people must be doing a spider theme this month, as spider activities have been my #1 download this past week.  It's certainly a nice alternative if your school doesn't celebrate Halloween.

I have some quicky spider activities for you today. The Spider Web Roll & Color game will help students review math skills in a fun way.  Younger students choose a partner and take turns rolling a dice.  Whatever number they roll, they color in a section of their web.  I made the spider webs small, so coloring won't be so time consuming.

Older students roll 2 dice and add them together.  I've also included a web worksheet where children write down their equations.  There's also a prediction sheet.  Students take a guess of how many individual sections there are on the web, and then figure out the correct answer.  Click on the link to view/download the Spider Web game.

Since the October Pumpkin and Fire Safety Bibliographies have been popular, I decided to make one for my all-time favorite Spider books too. Click on the link to view/print the Spider Bibliography

Finally, the Speaking of Spiders packet is chock full of writing activities and includes a venn diagram for comparing spiders and bats.

Since many of my Y5's think that a spider is an insect, I also made a Venn diagram where students compare spiders with insects. Venn diagrams are a terrific way to practice comparison & contrast.

There's a Spiders can... worksheet, as well as a spider KWL and several fact versus opinion activities.

Involve some science and have students label their spider.  I've included a fact sheet that will help explain the parts of a spider.

Also included is a mini spider report - graphic organizer, as well as a spider acrostic poem page + 2 adjective and verb practice pages.

I know a lot of my visitors collect the themed 10 frames to switch things up each month.

If that's you, click on the link for the spider-themed 10 frames packet.

If you also do the 1-2-3 Count With Me easy reader booklets, based on a 10 frame, click on the link for the 1-2-3 Count Spiders With Me  FREEBIE.

Well that's it for today.  Thanks for visiting.  I hope you can drop by tomorrow to grab some more FREEBIES.   I'm off to help my daughter with a children's sale.  Wishing you a fun-filled fall day too
