My contribution to this is what we did today to celebrate. We read one of Eric carle's most loved books,
The Very Busy Spider. One aspect I love about this book is that it has so many dimensions to it. You can talk about the animal that appears on each page, or move & sound like them as we did today. Or you can introduce maths concepts as the web is constructed such as, the number of threads that make it up increase each page, the shapes that appear as the web develops or classifying the animals into groups (eg: by number of legs). You can add to the experience by introducing props or other enhancements. Today we read the book a few times & each time our resident spider helped us along the way.
So in the end our Very Friendly Spider helped us read and experience The Very Busy Spider.
Wasn't it nice of her to take time away from her web?
