About this deal

Original 3-line summary: The Itsy Bitsy Spider is about a spider that goes through many obstacles to try to made a web again. The rain, the fan, a mouse, a cat, and some dew on a tree all get in the way of the itsy bitsy spider spinning a web again. At the end, she is finally able to rest in the sun on her web after the tree dried off. And the fingerplay pantomime goes like this with each action corresponding to each line in the lyrics:

Review: This re-telling of a classic story puts a new spin on the Itsy Bitsy Spider by adding more verses, and an ending. The spider is a positive role model for children, because she overcomes different obstacles (such as rain, a cat, a mouse, a fan, and tree’s dew) before reaching her goal of creating a web. Also, this is neither a positive nor a negative, but as the mother of a little boy who loves the Itsy Bitsy Spider I wonder why all the books we've seen so far make the spider a girl. The original rhyme doesn't specify, does it? I'm just assuming this spider's a girl because it's pink. Maybe I'm reading too much into that or gender stereotyping. But it's just a detail I thought was interesting since we recently read another book with a girl itsy bitsy spider. Little Richard on the Disney CD For Our Children, to benefit the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation [10] [a]Original 3-line summary: The little spider began an adventure of climbing up several different objects and coming against obstacles. SOme obstacles that the spider overcomes are rain, dew and a mouse. Yet, every time the spider gave her best attempt and finally reached a lovely spot in a tree where she spun her web and rested.

Original 3-line review: This book is a great book to read to the younger grades for its rhyming and captivating language and pictures. The students could be really engaged, especially in the beginning, since it should be a story they are mostly familiar with. I love that the book expands on the story that we all know, to make it a longer, more eventful one.This jubilant rhyming picture book expands the famous nursery rhyme into a celebration of resilience and teamwork. . . . By tale’s end, Itsy Bitsy has helped rescue the endangered, and he hosts a tea party for his new friends. The final dedication is “for those who have been ‘washed out’ and had the courage to climb up again.” Fun and inspiring. Use the spider puppet to act out the story. It can also be used as a reading pointer to point to each word as the emergent reader reads. New readers can read the highlighted words while an adult reads the other words. More confident readers can read all the words on their own. This nursery rhyme will be an effective book for read aloud, allowing children to be engaged when singing and creating the gesture of the spider climbing with their hands. Also, it allows children to be exposed to rhyming and recognizing words that rhyme. This nursery rhyme allows teachers to ask open-ended questions about what may happen next to the spider throughout the book.

Uses in class: 1. The class can use construction paper and/or felt to make spider puppets. then, they can sing the song aloud and make the spider puppet "crawl up the spider web" as they say the words to the rhyme. Danish-Norwegian pop band Aqua, then known by their original band name Joyspeed, released a single only " Itzy Bitzy Spider" Known as the “Incy Wincy Spider” in Australia and the U.K., the nursery rhyme describes the adventures of a spider as it climbs up, climbs down, and then reascends in a drain spout of a gutter system. As noted above, the singing of the song is usually accompanied by fingerplay or a sequence of gestures that mimic the words in the song and the multi-legged creature that is the protagonist. This is by far one of my favorite books to read with children. Children enjoy singing along with the part they were familiar with, but are intrigued by the spider's new adventures. The children continue to participate actively because it is something familiar but with a slight twist in the storyline. I have a printable interactive book of the nursery rhyme for you to use with non-readers and beginning readers. Let’s take a look at how to use it.
