This summer we have had a rare treat to watch. We have had a spider that took up his home right outside out door. We watched him all summer. We saw the many different bugs and insects that he caught in his web. We learned he would rest and when he was on the hunt for more bugs.
After watching the spider all summer when picking books for this month’s Poppin Book Nook theme, we kept our spider in mind.
For that reason, we picked Charlotte’s Web (Trophy Newbery) for our book this month. We read it during the month. It was fun to read and do something different. Plus it tied in with our observartions for the summer.
We have watched our spider eat all sorts of things. I think the most amazing to watch was that he caught other spiders as well!
Each of the girls made their own webs. This was a geat fine motor activity and everyone had their own web. It was fun to see how small or big they made their webs.
They used the alphabet stamp set to stamp words on their webs. Each of them had their own words they wanted to use.
Some examples were love, gluten free or their names. The idea was to use words that were important to them.
They added spiders to their webs and it was fun to see the final web and words.
