We Love Spiders

After Halloween our little ones were enthusiastic about spiders, asking lots and lots of questions so we had to continue working with them.

In english we focus on the story "The Very Busy Spider" and we learned lots of things about Spider Webs.

The first thing was getting to know who really liked spider and who thought they were disgusting:

There were some kids missing that day but the result was clear: 3 year olds wanting to learn things about spiders. Brilliant.

We saw the adorable story "The Very Busy Spider" in video, I told the story, we represented the story in little groups and after that we created popsicle puppets to tell the story at home.

When representing the story the animals (in groups) said: "spider, do you want to play?" and the spiders (we needed more than one to make speaking english easier for them) said "No I am busy"

Probably the best activity yet was "Building Spide webs" They started getting interested on how spiders build their webs. We talked about if it could be easy or difficult building webs. Some kids make the connection between the story and reality saying that it must be hard as the spider didn't have time to play with the animals in the story and then she fell asleep.

We then decided to build a spider web in class using a ball of yarn.

and some days later we built one outside.




Using watercolors we colored spider webs


The kids also made their own spiders and spiderwebs


We decided to introduce Halloween using spiders so we could also continue working on the autumn season.

We started by singing the Incy Wincy Spider song which they loved. Asun was also singing it in Spanish so it was really fun seeing them trying to teach me the song in Spanish too.


We represented the story using some cards on the board:

Ander and his family made this adorable Halloween decoration for the classroom:

we did some very cool halloween sequencing

we went to the library to hear halloween stories. There was a very cool area outside the school library with all the halloween books and a very spooky decoration.

we made or halloween costumes and we had an amazing time in the halloween party with the rest of the kindergarteners. The 5 year olds came to trick or treat with us
