Students love Halloween and they especially love to use our pretend spiders to tell number stories. You can pick up a bag at Target, or party stores. Each student gets their own large Spider Web Number Story Mat that we mount on construction paper and laminate so we can reuse them from year to year. We also give each student a cup full of 10 spiders. They get to make up their own spider number story. When we see that the students are understanding the concept, we have them record their number story on their own Spider Web Number Story Recording Sheet.
