Spiders and the Common Core

Let me start by saying THANK YOU for the outpouring of love and support you gave me for {this} post last week! We have the BEST readers, ever!!! Thank you!


We first started the week by reading a lot of informational and narrative stories about spiders!

Then, we graphed whether or not we thought spiders were scary! We used the free app on our iPad called Doodle Buddy

We recorded our results on Cara Carroll's cutest recording sheet {here}.

And then we wrote an opinion piece (Common Core Opinion Writing) about if we were afraid of spiders.  We supported our opinion with 2 reasons why! 

We also wrote an informational piece on what we learned about spiders and you can see how we did that {here}. 

Then, we did some of these in math! We are working on counting on and counting back, so our equations are simple.

You've got some brave kiddos in your class. We had to talk them off the ledge when we said we were going to be learning about spiders=lots of shrieks and gasps!
Cute stuff!

Thanks for the awesome freebie. I can't wait to get back in a classroom and use it! Thanks!! I loved the idea about Doodle Buddies too! We've used it for writing before in Kinder, but I like the graphing idea!

Hope you don't mind... I linked up your post to an October collection of links that integrate the iPad in the classroom. I love how you were able to share and graph that information digitally!
