Before reading The Very Busy Spider, grab your students' attention with this awesome spider cutting "craftivity" and review symmetry at the same time.
Cover LOTS of Common Core State Standards with these grammar cards. Put them in a pocket chart or on your whiteboard and read the sentences together as a whole group. For added fun make a spider pointer with the spider pattern, glue it to a Popsicle stick and use it to point to the words as you read them.
A nice follow-up activity, to do after you read the book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and Chicka Boom 1 2 3. Students trace and then write the number and number word, plus bingo dot or color, that many coconuts beside the coconut tree.
These are great activities to do after reading Dr. Seuss' (Theo. LeSieg's) book, Ten Apples Up On Top. Students can simply choose an animal from the story and color it, and then cut and glue their apples on top of their character. (I've included blank red apples, blank black and white apples, as well as numbered apples in color and in black and white.) or older students can roll the dice to see which apple they should glue up on top. Numbered strips are provided for the game. There's also a graphing extension.
After reading Dr. Seuss' (Theo. Lesieg) Ten Apples Up On Top , have students write their name on red, green and yellow apples and then glue them in an ABCABC pattern, on top of their head shot.
1 page. Good advice. Use posters as writing prompts and ask students to comment on them. Do they agree or disagree? What does the poster mean? etc. This FREEBIE is part of my jumbo 203-page Miss Nelson is Missing Literacy & Math packet in my TpT shop. Click on the link to pop on over. For your convenience, I've included a PREVIEW here.
