We have started on the letter 's' this week and there are so many things that begin with this sound! It has been very exciting! In K1 we do a lot of singing because it can help us remember our learning better. Today we learned to sing "A Spider Spins a Web" and while we were singing we all sat in a circle and created one big spider web together by throwing a ball of string around. Look at our spider web! We had so much fun we did this three times in a row!

You can sing this at home with your child too and do it with hand actions. Here are the lyrics and below a video so you can hear the tune (to "The Farmer in the Dell")

The spider spins a web (Move hand around in circles)
The spider spins a web
Round and round and
*Up and down
(point up and then down)
The spider spins a web

*Second verse instead of  "up and down" use "side to side"  and in the third verse change to "front and back"

Hi K1PA. That is a great spider web. Did you catch any pesky flies?

We didn't catch any flies! We were practicing making a spider web!

Hi K1PA, that's a cool spider web. In K2 we are inquiring into what animals eat. Perhaps you can share with us how spiders catch their prey.

Spiders catch their food with the web. Then they wrap up the insect they caught with the silk web.
