Finger Play Fun Day: The Itsy Bitsy Spider and The Great Big Hairy Spider

We Sing About a Variety of Spiders in the Popular Children's Song

 
We are continuing with our Halloween theme this month for Finger Play Fun Day.  Today's song is the very popular children's song - The Itsy Bitsy Spider.  But in our version, a few other spiders come to visit too.

We have the Great Big Hairy Spider,

the Very Fast Spider and

the Very Slow Spider!

Children enjoy songs that they know but with a little twist.  These variations help develop a bigger vocabulary, including opposites such as fast and slow, itsy bitsy and great big.  I encourage you to be creative and make your own pairs of opposites!

Carolyn, from Wise Owl Factory, has made a Free Itsy Bitsy Spider printable plus a great book review and worksheets to go with Gail Gibbon's book Spiders.

This book has a lot of fascinating facts about spiders that will interest you and your child!
