Often times I hear Texas teachers say, “I’d love to teach more thematically, but those things just aren’t in our curriculum.” They are right. We don’t have scarecrows, bats, or spiders. But we do have science standards and reading standards that allow us to work in these FUN and engaging topics!
The Reading TEKS are too many to list, but here are the Science TEKS!
Then during Science time we hit the Science standards and we ask questions, organize our findings, and tell about what we found through graphic organizers.
Do your little learners enjoy learning about spiders? Does it tie into your curriculum nicely? It’s definitely a fall favorite in our classroom every year!
