Colorful Spider Web Patterns - K

I always begin Kindergarten with a story.  Today we read Eric Carle's The Very Busy Spider.  During demo, I reviewed vertical & horizontal lines, and introduced diagonal lines.  Students created their spider web using these lines, and then traced them with black crayon.  I then reviewed patterns.  This is a big concept that they go over in their regular classroom, but it is nice to reinforce concepts whenever possible.
