Spider on the Floor

Found In: halloween, kinesthetic learning, songs & poems

Usually around Halloween, at least one grade level is studying about spiders. I read the book, Spider on the Floor from Raffi's Songs to Read, to my students. Then, I teach the corresponding song. I distribute inexpensive spider rings to each child that they can keep. We sing the song and place the spider on the floor, on our leg, etc. I give the children the opportunity to make up their own verses. They have a great time putting the spider in their hair, on their back and so forth. This lesson also can be used to teach spatial relationships and prepositional phrases.
