We recycled the paper that the evil spider was smooshed on. And then we continued like nothing at all had happened.....except I had goosebumps and kept looking out the corner of my eye for more spiders.
What would my evaluation have looked like? I had student engagement. Ha!
I AM AFRAID OF SPIDERS.
They seek me out.
And some are poisonous here in Texas. Like the brown recluse whose bite will eat away at your skin.
They show up in horrible places- like the shower, or my car, or the lid to the recycle bin and then they taunt me.
And I think some of them carry weapons- I'm just sayin.
Luckily just before Halloween I read "Aaaaargh Spider" by Lydia Monks and we graphed whether or not we liked spiders so my kids know how I feel about them. Plus, it was mentioned on the first day of school right after my "Please don't show me wiggly teeth" speech.
It's absolutely adorable with super cute illustrations. The spider (who has a heart for lips) wants to be a family pet.
It's not really a Halloween book so you could read it any time.
I'm working on synonym task cards and hope they will be done today or tomorrow so look for a post tomorrow! Have a great Saturday!
PS: Watch out for spiders
