the week before halloween was e week. I made a big “spooky” spider web and connected it to the letter e because 1. there is that silly song about the elephants who go out to play upon a spider’s web one day and 2. spiders have egg sacks. masking tape was added all week long. tuesday morning we made mama spider out of packaging paper, masking tape and collected sticks for legs.as the week went on, mama got a white trash bag egg sack and it got filled with babies (made with lunch sacks, masking tape and cardboard legs)!all the babies ended up going home with preschool friends…a tender farewell to mama was negotiated between several preschoolers and the babies. now mama hangs from our ceiling and will wait until next fall to hatch another few dozen babies.
