What is a SPIDER?!

SPIDERS where the topic of our storytime today. 
Books we read:
About Arachnids (Spiders) by Cathryn Sill
Little Miss Spider by David Kirk
The Eensy Weensy Spider FREAKS OUT! by Troy Cummings
Aaaarrgghh! Spider! by Lydia Monks

 Before reading Eensy Weensy Spider, we did the finger play of Itsy Bitsy Spider.  The kids knew it better than I did! 

Craft project:  We made our own SPIDERS.

Supplies needed:   Black fuzzy sticks for legs, black poms poms for the body and google eyes.
Take the Fuzzy Stick and fold in half, cut, fold in half again, cut.  You should have four fuzzy sticks the same size.  Take and twist the fuzzy sticks until bound together then take the eight ends and bend them how you want them.  This makes up the legs.  Glue the Pom pom to the legs to make the body.  Depending on the size of the pom poms you use you may want to use 2 pom poms, one for the head and the other for the body.  Glue on the eyes, let dry.
Here are pictures of the kids making their own spiders.

Great Job everyone!  Thanks for coming.  Hope to see you all next week.
