Week of Oct. 21 - 25

First grade classes read SpidersSpiders is a nonfiction book.  We saw real pictures of spiders.  We learned that spiders have two body parts, eight legs, and most spiders have eight eyes.    Spiders also eat insects and there are more than 35,000 different kinds of spiders.  We used the glossary to learn the meaning of words we did not know.  Most nonfiction books have a glossary in the back to learn new words.
