Spider Counting Book

Hey my Freebielicious Friends!

I have a cutie of a Halloween emergent reader to share with you today....
Click HERE to grab your Freebie!
Now, really?? How sweet are these characters? Anyhoo - it's not just an easy reader, it's also an interactive counting book. You see, the kiddos draw the corresponding spiders on each character as they read the book! Math and Literacy combined - the best of both worlds!

I hope you can use this Freebie-licious Freebie! Please let me know what you think AND please stop by my blog to discover all kinds of other great stuff!!

(I included 2 versions. Someone noticed the spider on the first version only has 6 legs..hahaha -- as a teacher, I would simply guide the kiddos to notice that and have them correct that mistake themselves. However, I did decide to include a set with a spider with 8 legs!) :0) Feel free to use the set you like the most!

  14. Thank for the version with the anatomically correct spider! It drives me crazy when clip art pictures do not have the correct number of legs! =)

    This will be a great book for my kiddos to make this week when we have a sub...THANK YOU! =)

  15. This is so great! Thank you! I just love Halloween in the classroom! I don't think I ever would have noticed the 6 legs, although my kiddos probably would have!

  16. Heather - you are so welcome.....I was surprised that the clipart I bought had 6 legs......

    Sarah - you can always count of the kiddos to find the errors.....that's why I'd have my kiddos fix it....

    Now you can choose which one to use. Since we've learned that spiders have 8 legs - I will probably use the one with 6 legs and see if the kiddos notice - then let them help out the artist who drew the 6 legs :0)
