Silly Spider Art Project {free download}

 

007

We made these fun spiders last week and they turned out just precious.

I actually made these 2 years ago and we mounted them on lime green paper.. I did not have any large green paper so we used this pinkish-purple paper.

They would even be cute without the background paper.

Maybe on a big spider web!

Download the patterns below. I print them on white paper from my computer then run them on construction paper on our school’s copier.

I totally flaked out this week and did not take but a few pictures of my kids.. WHAT?!? I had my camera everyday but it was a crazy week..

011

I did get these 2 pictures of this ordinal word center we did. .. it was a big hit. I moved these cards into our pocket chart basket.. so now they can use them anytime they are given permission to use the pocket chart. That way.. they can be used over and over until the end of October.

You can buy my Halloween centers on TpT ..

I obviously killed my beloved home laminating machine.. it won’t heat up { oh no! } so I am off to shop around for a replacement! I cannot live without it!

We are out of school tomorrow. (yea!! for Columbus Day!) I am so excited for an extra day! Hope you have a great weekend!

so cute! thank you! (and thank you for putting your "name" on the downloads so I can remember who to give credit for when I share them (the freebies)! I ALWAYS forget where I got what.
Oh...P.S. Do you print up your color copies all at home?? Our school is so budgeted these days, that I can't print up at school anymore, and I KNOW I would run out of ink on my home printer...so I'm having to resort to going to and office store.

Love the spiders! Also love your Halloween unit! Kiddos do, too! Thanks for your hard work?? Is Rankin County the only district in MS that doesn't get a break this week?? Our kids are off tomorrow, but we have PD...Kim, what kind of laminator did you get at Sam's??

karen said...

Thanks for posting the spider patterns! Can't wait for my kids to make these next week. Our kids are off tomorrow, but it's a work day for us. A day of meetings--joy. I would much rather have the kids there :)

Those are so cute! I'm downloading them! Thanks so much! I love my laminator from Wal-mart. It is a Scotch and I think it was $25 or something. It works great and I couldn't live without it either! Visit my blog for a fun holiday exchange! You would be so good and anyone would be lucky to have you as their exchange partner! You're so creative!

Thank you so much! I love your blog. I don't have one of my own, but I enjoy yours so much. I am a stay-at-home mom most days, but teach Pre-K at our church two days a week. I taught Kinder and Pre-Kinder for 7 years before staying home. Thank you again for sharing!

Every Friday I have to do "specials" with kindergarten, first, and second graders. Thanks for giving me this week's activity!

beachliesl said...

Love the spiders! I will trace the templates onto old file folders, so the kiddos can trace the pieces themselves. This will be a great followup to Miss Spider's Tea Party---and I'll have them write later using the sentence prompt, "My spider likes _________."

I loved the spiders! I made them with my class last week, but we did not use a background paper. We hung them from the classroom ceiling and I added more skills to the project. The children had to make an AB pattern on all the spiders legs and they had to write one spider Fact on the spiders back. They turned out sooo cute!! Thank you so much for sharing! This is one activity I will do again!

I can't STAND the cuteness of these spiders!!! I have done them with both of my K classes this week , and passed on the information to several of my colleagues! "Spread the cuteness!" should be your new motto! Thanks for the inspiration!!

Amy Hedtler said...

We used your spiders while learning s, and wore them on headbands at our Halloween party! The kids loved them! Thanks so much!

I just saw this super cute freebie on someone's five for friday blog and I downloaded "for the future" since I am not in a classroom this year! I will mention it on my blog one day soon though. Thanks for sharing!

Michelle O. said...

These are super cute - thinking of using them for the craft project at the Halloween party. What size paper are these mounted on? Initially I thought it was 8 1/2 x 11, but in looking at the template, that seems too small.

amiebuzza said...

The spiders are so cute. My firsties will love making them. And I love your idea about putting them on a big web! Now, to think of a title to go with it...
