Spiders

I think this podcast called SPIDERS is one of my favorites. The first song is a nursery rhyme you will know, “The Incy Wincy Spider,” so please sing it with Teri. Singing this nursery rhyme with children we often change the words and sing “the teeny tiny spider” or “the roly poly spider” and make our actions and voices match the spider. The song “The Busy Spider” is one I composed and is a song I enjoy very much. The words for the chorus are:

I am a busy spider

‘Cos if I want to eat

I have to build a spider web

That’s strong, and sticky and neat.

I hope you sing this part along with Bethany. Now not all spiders make webs, but many do, and that’s what Webster, the spider in our story does. I did some research about spiders and building webs and used the information I learned for the lyrics in the song.

Our story features a spider called Webster that unknowingly becomes a “pet” for William. I have written several stories that involve a group of children who are at school together. Sometimes the story is about the whole class and their teachers, Miss Emily and Miss Hannah, and sometimes about one of the children in the class. William is in this class. Perhaps you recognize the names James, Flora, Katie, Tom and Zoe from other stories?
