Our Spider Friend...

We had an unexpected visitor drop in during our science time today!

This little spider literally dropped down from the ceiling in the middle of our Forces lesson. We just happened to be talking about pushes and pulls and one student mentioned how gravity pulls us down on Earth. Then {Enter Spider} to model how gravity works. Gotta love those unplanned teachable moments!

The kids, of course, thought it was super cool. One even asked if I had planned this spider entrance for the lesson. Um…couldn't even pretend to admit to that!

I actually didn't have too many squealers. We were too in awe. 

I did have one brave little boy capture the spider and escort him outside. :)

Just thankful it didn't land on one of the kids!

I actually do have some really neat things to post that we are doing in class but for now, I'm off to bed. 

I plan to share how our Letters to Santa: A Wish for Others lesson went. We have finished our letters and "emailing" to Santa this week. Then they will go on our bulletin board, just in time before the break! The kids did a great job! :)

We've also had a lot of fun learning about magnets this week too! Stay tuned. : )
