Book: The Very Busy Spider by Eric Carle

Itsy Bitsy Spider
fk-2754-2

The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout
Down came the rain and washed the spider out
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain
And the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again

To make this class song more interactive and fun try using a spider puppet or sing it again using “the great big spider.” When using a spider puppet I always tell the children that I’m going to introduce them to a very nice friend of mine. The spider puppet then comes out and is introduced to the children and might even shake hands. The kids get a kick out of this and it helps the children who might otherwise be scared of the puppet.

Spider on the Floor
You can either sing this song or play a recording. I personally use “Spider on the Floor” by Bill & Linda Seaberg. Since this is a longer song I have included the link to the lyrics.
“Spider on the Floor” by Raffi

Check out my post to see how I made this portable flannel cube, it is the perfect size to take to daycares. 

The spider catches a fly
The spider catches a fly
Hi ho the dairy-o
The spider catches a fly
(repeat with other bugs)

Floating by for all to see
Floating by so merrily
Flutter, flutter butterfly
