It will soon be that spooky, fun holiday that shall not be named! To get into the spirit, First Graders will be making Alphabet Spiderwebs!
We start with writing the alphabet all over a black piece of paper with a white construction paper crayon. Then we connect all the letters to each other to resemble a web. Then we use some painted paper to make our spider. I just used some crayons and glitter to add eyes and a mouth.
I added the frame as an after thought but it would probably be better to do that first so you don’t cover up any letters.
First grade reviewed the alphabet as well as lines and patterns with the Cosmic Alphabet project. We discussed different types of lines and designs before we began and then we started on the alphabet. My paper already had boxes on it for the letters, but it only had 24 so I put two letters in two of the boxes. I tried to explain this to them but only some of them remembered. It’s fine – my goal was just for them to make sure all the letters were in order! We used a regular white crayon for the letters. Then we added the lines with the construction paper crayons. They loved how bright the colors looked on the black paper and said they thought the lines might glow in the dark. 😉
My example is first, then their’s follow. It was a great reviewing project!
