Last week we had a fun week talking about spiders. We found many, of all different colors and sizes, and of all different shape webs. We climbed in pretend webs and pretended to be spiders wrapping each other up as food, we practiced making webs, we tried eating dried crickets to see how spider food might taste, and we talked about spider adaptations like their 8 eyes and amazing spinnerets and super strong thread. We read several books about spiders, both fiction and nonfiction, and made some fun spider and web crafts.
This week we will talk more about different kinds of spiders and web strategies and about spider eggs and babies.
The early part of this week is supposed to be pretty rainy, so please bring everyone to school in rubber boots and full rain layers on top and bottom. Thank you!
Next week we will be talking about leaves. I want to make a big leaf pile for the back yard to have a full sensory leaf jumping experience. My yard has few leaf dropping trees to collect from at the moment, so if anyone has some leaf bags of nice, clean, pure leaves for jumping in (no dog poos or big sticks etc), I would gladly accept them and get rid of them after our leaf unit is over.
Thanks everyone and have a lovely week!
