Spike the Spider

Our spider friend Spike is an escape artist and got out of his home 3 time this morning alone!  So unfortunately we had to say good-bye to him today.  We released him on the playground this morning.  We will go look for him or some of his friends and the wonderful webs that they make next week.  Maybe we will see him while we are on the playground...the kids sure are looking for him. If anyone knows of a better way to keep spiders in the classroom I would love to hear it!  We really did enjoy having him as a pet!

New Friends!!

We have 2 new friends in our classroom that we are very excited about.  We have Crystal the caterpillar, he is in a cocoon right now.  We also have a orb web spider, named Spike, who is hiding in a corner of his new home.  We hope that soon we will see some changes from them!  Today we made a hypothesis about what the caterpillar will look like when he comes out as a butterfly and what kind of web our spider will make.   Come back soon for updates about our friends!  By the way the kids names these friends all by themselves...aren't they great names!?!?
