“”Come into my parlor!” said the spider to the fly!”
Many of the littles in Kindergarten struggle with bravery at this time of the year as even the first peal of shivery music of the season can send them over the edge! Since I want music to be FUN and not TERRIFYING, I begin our Silly Scary unit with familiar everyday scary things!
Of course, we sing Itsy, Bitsy Spider and then we play a game I found on Pinterest last year from familyreunionhelper.com. The children love the modified version and it provides wonderful opportunity for text extension, expression and vocal development.
I bought the non-scary, colorful, soft spiders from Walgreen’s last year.
