Spider Math, Science, Literacy, and Crafts

With the start of October almost here, lots of classes will be having fun learning about SPIDERS!
It's a great time of year to do science, math, literacy, and crafts with a spider theme.

I love making simple paper plate clocks with kids for ALL the holidays. It's simple, inexpensive, and gives kids needed practice with learning and practicing their telling time skills.




To make the clock with kids, you can start with a plain white paper plate clock and some paint or crayons to decorate the paper plate or buy some inexpensive decorated plates like the one in the picture above.
Add some numbers and 2 hands and the kids are all set for some fun math practice! The kids can write the numbers directly on the paper plate or they can write the numbers on small color coding self -adhesive labels. The hands can be made with construction paper or craft foam and fastened with a brass fastener.

I love all of Miss Frizzle's adventures and these books are very popular with kids.! :) Reading The Magic School Bus Spins A Web is a great science and literacy activity for this time of year.
