Do you read ”The Very Busy Spider”
by Eric Carle? It’s one of my students’ favorite spider books
With that in mind, I designed this writing prompt
page for a class book: “The Very Busy Students and Their Spiders
There’s a trace
template for younger kiddos, as well as a pattern page for older students to fill in the blanks:
“My spider was very busy ___________. As for me, most of the time I’m busy _____________.”
Children complete the prompt and illustrate
their page. You collect, collate and add the cover
I’ve included a completed sample to help clarify what you want your students to do.
When you share the story with the class, each student can come up and read their page.
The parents really enjoy reading our class-made
books during parent-teacher conferences
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy spinning a story as much as mine.
