Kindergarten Texture Spiders

Kindergarteners know lots of cool things about spiders!  We talked about spiders that jump, what spiders eat for lunch (flies, of course), and counted how many legs a spider has.  We read Eric Carle’s “The Very Busy Spider” and made some awesome fuzzy spiders.

Kindergarten artists learned about the art element of texture as they created their spooky spiders.  After they were given their fabric spider bodies, Kinders used their weekly vocabulary word describe to tell each other the texture they could feel on their spider bodies.  They were excited to think up new “feels like” words including fuzzy, soft, furry, squishy, and even the scratchy texture on the underside of their fabric.

Kinders followed many directions to cut spider eyes and fangs, and loved folding and rolling paper to make fancy spider legs.  They made sure they were not “glue monsters” as they glued their spider parts using “just a dot, not a lot”.

I CAN: describe texture, use scissors correctly, use careful glueing skills

Special thanks to Tina for the fabulously furry spider idea!
