Creepy Crawly Spiders

This week we have been learning about spiders.   

Mrs. Levy brought in her son's pet tarantula Morgan.  


We observed Morgan, read spider books and wrote spider facts.


We looked at a remote control tarantula and compared it in a Venn diagram with the real spider.



What was your favorite spider fact? 

Which spider did you like better- the real spider or the toy tarantula?

Just keep swimming!

This week we read many stories about characters that just didn't quit.  In Jasper's Beanstock, Jasper worked and worked to make sure his bean grew.  Zig, in A Hut For Zig Bug, kept of finding more things to decorate his new hut.  On Sunday Mrs. Levy is going to try to remember those great characters when she is swimming in the Golden Gate Sharkfest.  I will swim from San Francisco to Sausalito, right under the Golden Gate Bridge.

Update:  Here is a picture of 
Mrs. Levy and Mrs. McEvoy at the swim.
