Free Printable for The Itsy Bitsy Spider

Spiders are often included in October classroom studies and art projects, so today’s free PDF is about the Itsy Bitsy spider.  The printable has a work page to rewrite the poem (a little) to be about an insect, a writing prompt page, and includes a little book to make.  Many schools do not directly include Halloween in the curriculum, but include some of the fun things about the season such as bats, cats, and spiders during October.

Tonya Dirksen of Strings, Keys, and Melodies has a blog post with YouTube song for the Itsy Bitsy Spider and the Great Big Hairy Spider!  The way she varies the speed of the songs help make them entertaining and fun.

See also my fall freebies page which has several more fun October printables, and another spider PDF.

Thank you for reading, Carolyn
