Spider Books for Kids
In addition to movies, I love to include a wide variety of books in my lessons. I use some for read-alouds and save others for independent reading (when appropriate).
Below, I’m sharing a few of my favorite books about spiders. I find they’re perfect for introducing spiders, increasing vocabulary, and illustrating important information.
Young learners love hands-on activities, and they help little ones engage with the topic at hand.
