Spiders

We did one of my favorite units last week, about insects and spiders.  I connected it to storytelling this week with a story about Anansi the spider (a nice multicultural bonus for my evaluator).  One of the kids was really into the story and asked to see "the one with the melon on it" during naptime.  He started retelling it on his own and stumbled over the name "Anansi." I helped him, telling him how to pronounce it.  He said, "I can't say that! I'll just call him Antsy."
