Spiders

We have started our spider unit this week... the children are very excited and already my one little girl who was TERRIFIED of spiders told me today outside when she was looking for webs and spiders that she just LOVES spiders.... YAH!  Here are some of the songs we are learning with the unit.


The Eency Weency Spider (new rendition)

The eency weency spider crawled up on (child's name)'s head
He crawled all around, then used it for a bed
He crawled down (his/her) back and jumped down to the floor
Then the eency weency spider crawled underneath the door.

 Spiders
 
Spiderlings hatch from eggs.
Each one has eight tiny legs.
A spider has more eyes than you.
Most have eight, and you have two.
A spider has two body parts.

Across its web it quickly darts.
From a spider's spinnerets
Sticky spider silk jets.
Spiders feel the frantic tugs,
Of their favorite food; it's bugs!


The Speedy Spider  (Sung to: "Oh Susannah")
I was sitting in my room one day
When it came right through the door.
A spider sped right by me;
Went racing 'cross the floor.


Oh, that spider! Oh how it scared me so.
But spiders can be good friends. And so I let it go.
I watched it crawl up on the wall,
To find a spot just right.
It spun a web so beautiful.
And then went out of sight.


Oh, that spider! Oh how it scared me so.
But spiders can be good friends. And so I let it go.
Now bugs and flies don't scare me,
For I know that it is true
That a spiderweb is good to have,
Bugs stick to it like glue.


Oh, that spider! Oh how it scared me so.
But spiders can be good friends. And so I let it go.

There's A Spider on the Floor  (Raffi)
There’s a spider on the floor, on the floor.
There’s a spider on the floor, on the floor.
There’s a spider on the floor,
Who could ask for anything more?
There’s a spider on the floor, on the floor.


Now the spider’s on my leg; on my leg.
Oh the spider’s on my leg, on my leg.
Oh, he’s really big!
This old spider on my leg.
There’s a spider on my leg, on my leg.


Now the spider’s on my stomach, on my stomach.
Oh, the spider’s on my stomach, on my stomach.
Oh, he’s just a dumb old lummock,
this old spider on my stomach .
There’s a spider on my stomach, on my stomach.


Now the spider’s on my neck, on my neck.
Oh the spider’s on my neck, on my neck.
Oh, I’m gonna be a wreck,
I’ve got a spider on my neck.
There’s a spider on my neck, on my neck.


Now the spider’s on my face, on my face.
Oh, the spider’s on my face, on my face.
Oh, what a big disgrace,
I’ve got a spider on my face.
There’s a spider on my face, on my face.


Now the spider’s on my head, on my head.
Oh, the spider’s on my head, on my head.
Oh, I wish that I were dead.
I’ve got a spider on my head.
There’s a spider on my head, on my head.


But he jumps off. NOW…

There’s a spider on the floor, on the floor.
There’s a spider on the floor, on the floor.
Who could ask for any more,
than a spider on the floor.

There’s a spider on the floor, on the floor.
