Peek at Week: Spiders

Last week was everything bats! It was a jam packed week and full of learning. I have never seen my kids so excited to learn! And I love teaching all things fall and Halloween so this was perfect!!!

We started by creating a fun KWL chart to see what we already knew about bats. I was surprised at how much they already knew!

Our weekly poem was all about bats! I heard them singing this all day. Click the picture below to grab this at DeeDee's store!

During Daily 5, we practiced spelling our CVC words. They are picking up on this so quickly! I am so proud. Click the picture to head over to Caitlyn's store!

We also worked on our newest Flippy Flap. These are becoming a huge hit in my room. They are always asking when they get to work on them!

Next week will be all about Spiders!!!! Can I just say that I am deathly afraid of spiders!!! And when I say afraid I don't mean like scream like a little girl. I mean that I have jumped out of a moving car on the interstate because there was a spider crawling in the car. Anyways, teaching about spiders is fun as long as I don't have to see any real spiders! 

We will be starting our newest flippy flap next week. Click below to take a peek!
