October Themes ....Spider, Bats, and Fire Prevention

Each child wrote a fact about spiders and we put them on our web.  Then we did a whole group writing activity filling in the blanks for the spider chart. 
Every day we read a a few pages in a non-fictional Spider book.  The students wrote one fact that they learned each day. 
We made a list of animals that were diurnal and nocturnal. 
Using a few of our high frequency words and beginning sounds, we were able to do a whole class writing activity.  I used different colors lines so the children could easily keep up with where to write.
