Peek At My Week- Spiders

I am super excited to link up with Mrs. Wills Kindergarten: Peek at my Week.

Our corporation kindergarten curriculum map is developed so that all kindergarten teachers teach according to the Common Core standards.
This week we are to teach:
* The initial and ending sound /s/
* sight words- have, is, in
* comprehehsion skill- setting
* writing standard: K.W.2

This week my theme is SPIDERS!!  I am so ready for some non-fiction teaching!!

I am including this week's lesson plans on Google Docs.  Just click the image below to view my plans.

I know it is hard to read.  Click on the image above to see it in Google Docs.

I will be using the following units for my Guided Reading Workshop.

One of my favorite components of my reading block is using Jen Jones' Phonological Awareness.  I will be using the book Spiders by Gail Gibbons this week for Phonological Awareness.

In kindergarten, we do a lot of writing in response to literature.  This week I will be using parts of each of these units.

In math, I will be using my October Daily Math Journals.  These are available in my TpT store.

I also came across a mini-unit on TpT that was FREE.  It is by Miss Kindergarten Love.  I already had my plans done when I found this wonderful treasure!!  I will be squeezing it in sometime this week.

Endless Possibilities,


  1. Spider Week sounds like so much fun! I know your students will definitely be excited and engaged about learning! Thanks for sharing your plans!

    1. Thank you. It was so much fun looking for ideas too. I am actually creating an emergent reader that I plan to put on TpT as a freebie by the end of the week. :)

  2. Spider Week is not creepy at all :-) Smiles and stop by anytime!

  3. I love your lesson plans! I wish I could have planned better than that! I am having a giveaway on my blog. Come check it out!
