Spiders - Pre-K

I had tremendous fun with you today!  We read and sang about spiders and your kids had some great responses to my questions (like what pesky bugs spiders may eat and what we should name my spider puppet).


We got loud in Aaaarrgghh! Spider! by Lydia Monks.  My spider, aptly named Fluffy, helped act out this book about a spider who desperately wants to be a family pet.

The spider in The Very Busy Spider by Eric Carle was too busy play with the other animals because she was building her web.  The children helped with the story with their great animal sounds.

We didn't read these, but The Itsy Bitsy Spider by Keith Chapman and The Itsy Bitsy Spider by Iza Trapani are fun variations of this classic rhyme. 

Movement: Everyone got a plastic spider tied to a piece of yarn for the song "Spider on the Floor".  Our spiders bounced all the way from the floor up to our heads!  I did not use Raffi's version, but if you want to hear it or read the book that goes with it you can find them here: Spider on the Floor by Bill Russell / "Spider on the Floor" by Raffi.

Flannel:  I added bugs to the web as the spider caught them

The spider catches the fly
The spider catches the fly
Hi Ho the derry-o
The spider catches the fly

Letter of the Day: Cc
Your kiddos guessed our letter of the day based on the pictures I held up (comb, coconut).  In a second game, they identified the picture that didn't belong (camel, cactus, pineapple, corn).

THERE WILL BE NO STORYTIME DEC 1ST.  Instead, join us in the evening at 4:30 for our 5th Annual Caroling in the Library:

Usher in the holiday season with Perry Library Staff! Join us for cookies, hot chocolate and coffee while you enjoy the festivities!
