Spider Web Sight Words
It must be Halloween season because that is all that is on my mind! I thought a fun way to practice sight words would be to make them into Spider Web Sight Words Cards and to hang them on a spider web. So I created sight word cards with a spidery theme, picked up a pre-made web at the dollar store and plan to hang the web in my classroom with a few words each day to help my students practice their sight words.
I used mini-clothes pins to hand the cards on the web.
And while I was at it, I created some Spider Web Number Cards as well and had some fun thinking of all the possibilities…
A math problem of the day…
A math pattern for the day…
An addition family to be practiced that day…
Really the options are endless. These are just a few I plan to try out throughout the month of October. Who knows, one day Halloween words might appear on the web for a writing activity or our word of week (vocabulary) may take on a spidery appearance on the web.
I can’t wait to try this out. The web heads to school with me tomorrow morning and will be one of the first things my students see when they get to school on October 1st.

So far the web has been a HUGE hit in my classroom. Here are the first few days worth of ideas. I will try to post more as we go along.

AFTER SCHOOL LINK UP
The After School Link Up is a great place to share ideas and to find new ideas to do with your children after school or in your homeschool. The After School Link Up goes live every Monday. So, if you are a blogger, an educator or just someone looking for some good ideas, be sure to stop by Boy Mama Teacher Mama (or the other co-hosts) on Mondays and see what others have to share.
I had fun visiting the posts from last weeks linky party. There are so many wonderful ideas out there!
Here are a few of my favorites….
Love this free game to go with any spelling word list. Can’t beat that!
These lunch box notes are perfect for October lunches. I am definitely putting these in my sons’ lunches!
And now the linky…
