Spider Unit and Reading

We have just started an exciting unit on SPIDERS! During the next two weeks, our reading will be focussed on whole class reading and using the spider reading centre questions - as well as researching the features, habitats and adaptations of different spiders - instead of guided reading. I won’t be bringing books home regularly during this time. Here’s what I can do at home instead:
O Go on a spider hunt - note the spider’s habitat, how big its web is and the spider’s features. I can  use the information at school to work out what species of spider it is.
O Visit the Halswell Community Library for spider books
O    Read information on spiders on the internet (see links on this page)
O Read for enjoyment, for 15 to 20 minutes each night.
O Continue learning my spelling words on and using
