When I taught 2nd grade, our first read-aloud was Charlotte's Web.  We studied spiders for our Science Lessons as well as Vocabulary, Comprehension...  After the story, the classes watched the movie.  While the teachers were in the classroom monitoring the movie, our parents were outside setting up a 'pig-nic' for us to enjoy.  We had pictures taken with either cardboard pigs or, if we could get one, a real piglet.  The parents created a webbed backdrop to our 'pig-nic' with a large spider gracing it.  I remember our meal included pigs in the blanket.  We had a lot of fun.  Our last activity was to write a 'yarn' about the event.
