EWWW Spiders!


This week our theme unit was spiders EWWWW!  I am definitely not a big fan of spiders but my kiddos sure do LOVE learning about them.  We had TONS of fun including reading Miss Spider’s Tea Party by David Kirks and having our own tea party.  Here are a few of the centers that we did this week as well as a few theme activities.

I got this activity and the next from 

Mrs. Lee’s Spider unit on TPT!  🙂

You should definitely check it out.

After reading Miss Spider’s Tea Party we graphed 

our favorite tea (juice).  This idea originally came from 

Kinder by Kim.  You should check her site out.  

She is FANTASTIC!!!!

This is also a Kim favorite!  🙂

This week our kiddos learned about fire safety and

to wrap everything up Sparky the fire dog came for a visit.


  1. These are soooo adorable!! I know this may seem like a silly question, but I am really trying to visualize how you use these centers. Do you make more than one copy of each center? For example, let's use the "Web" by sounds activity. Do you make more than one set of spiders and webs? If so, how do you make sure they don't get mixed up when the kids are at that station? If not, do you put several different activities for each center group? Can ya help a girl out? =)

  2. Hi! No, I do not make more than one set of each game. I have 5 literacy and 5 math center baskets that rotate through my groups throughout the week. I only make 1 set of each game and then the kiddos in the group share the game pieces. I hope that makes sense. 🙂

  3. Thank you for answering my question about your centers! I just LOVE everything! I will continue to follow you and look forward to your posts!!!! Thanks for sharing your ideas!!!!!

  4. Rachelle & Fantastic Frogs send me an e-mail and I will be glad to send you some activities. 🙂

  5. I just wanted to send you a huge THANK YOU for your thoughtfulness and generosity in sending me these wonderful printables. You are awesome!

  6. I just stumbled upon your blog (as I'm searching for spider activities)…LOVE IT! Amazing ideas! Are you selling the above activities on TPT? I would love to use them! Thanks so much!


  7. I just discovered your blog – you're so creative! I, too, would love a copy of some of your spider activities, if you are willing to share. Or perhaps you can lead me in the right direction on where to find them. Thank you so much!


  8. I've tried a few times to post my comment, hopefully they won't all post at the same time! Cute ideas!!! Would you be able to send my any spider centers you wouldn't mind sharing? We're introducing Spring this week with a spider & insect theme. Thanks!!
