This week, we read The Little Old Lady Who Wasn’t Afraid of Anything. It’s a fun, repeating story with lots of fun sounds to make. On Thursday, we put on scarecrow clothes to play each part of the story. Our vocabulary words this week were:
Our Univseral Core Vocabulary words of the week were: she, not, and go.
In our middle school class, we read the book Hairy, Not Scary. This story was written by a Lifeskills high school class and talked about two students who wrote a report about tarantulas. Our class then wrote their own book. The Spider Book Please take a peek at this great story. We took turns reading it to each other and then lent the book to our friends in elementary school. They loved it, too!

Both classes really enjoyed a visit from my pet spider, Harry. He was very polite and enjoyed the kids taking him on walks. Everyone was very gentle and no one was scared in the least!
