Before our 3rd Charlotte’s Web Book Club, we were to have read chapters 6 & 7.
The prompt we asked the kids to answer from these chapters was: Would you like to be friends with Charlotte? Why or why not?
ALuv also did a Roman numeral matching game that I created for him as a review. I have a number of printables that I’ve made for our Charlotte’s Web lessons. Once we’re finished, I plan on bundling them in one download and putting it in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. For now, you can download them separately off of 4shared.
NJoy did some more work from my PreK Farm Unit (we did mostly the spider activities):
Spider Print Awareness
MBug participated in some coloring…boy, this little girl LOVES to color with markers!! I dare say she’d do it all.day.long. if I let her!
I threw a spider craft together one day
and had the boys draw spider webs on black construction paper,
then glue their spider craft from our 2nd meeting into their webs.
Book Club Time
Since they had already met all the main characters in the story, the older kiddos started off with this writing prompt:
(The picture cards are from this Charlotte’s Web lapbook.)
They each read their writing to one another; then Chapter 8 was read aloud and they had a discussion about friendship.
The Younger Tots
All the younger siblings met in the playroom and we read Moo, Moo Brown Cow. They enjoyed making the sounds of the farm animals and this book also introduces baby farm animal names.
So, we followed this up by doing the baby farm animal matching game from my PreK Farm Unit.
I pulled out some of the ABC Farm Cards (again from my PreK Farm Unit) and we discussed the vocabulary. Afterwards, we sang The Alphabet Song and they put them in order.
The last thing we did with the younger ones was some farm do-a-dot painting from Making Learning Fun (I printed off the duck, pig, lamb, and cow).
Can I just say that I love being surrounded by a bunch of moms who are passionate about teaching!? One of our moms thought up this craft and it worked beautifully for some fine motor practice:
hole punch around a paper plate
using yarn, lace it up (you can even add a spider)
and you’ve got your very own spider’s web!Like what you see? You can join This Reading Mama via RSS, Facebook, Twitter, or email! You can also follow me on Teachers Pay Teachers to receive updates when I post FREE, new downloads.
