Kindergarten Lesson Plans Week 10 featuring ideas learning about spiders. Each fall, we try to take a moment to learn more about arachnids!
Spider Read Aloud
The pictures are vibrant and detailed and this book offers a chance to explore text features of informational books.
We created a Spider Life Cycle chart.
Then students created their own version.
Other Spider Charts
Students worked on their schema.
And this anchor chart was helpful when the students went to write their own informational text. On this page, students labeled the spider.
Here are few other charts we used in our unit of study. Students wrote an opinion piece.
Spider Craft and Sentence Study
Each week we take a sentence to examine. This is a great chance to notice various concepts of print.
All of these resources shown above are part of our Engaging Readers Units. Each week, we take a book and read closely. Students comprehension soars as a result.
We also love Gail Gibbon’s book Spiders!
We have created a second grade Engaging Readers for this book. You can see it:
Scholastic Let’s Find Out
If you get the weekly reader from Scholastic called “Let’s Find Out!” there is a great artical in the October 2018 edition. Love these!
Arachnid Poem Shared Reading
Here is the poem of the week! Not only are poems a fun fluency activity, they also give us a great opportunity to learn and practice our work attack skills.
