Johnny by Guido Van Genechten (Theme Spiders)

Johnny needs a friend but everyone is afraid of him. If only they would give him a chance.

Before reading the book I have all the students stand in a circle. I take a ball of yarn and spin it in and out and across the circle of students until I have the perfect web. I ask the students to carefully sit down in the circle and I stand in the middle to read the book. At the end of the book I tell the students to stand up and trap me in their web.

Five little flies

By Vicky Manning

Five little flies flying around a web.

Teasing Old spider, can’t eat me, can’t eat me.

The Old spider in his web he did creep

And he snatched a fly and ate’m for a treat!

Four little flies flying around a web.

Teasing Old Spider, can’t eat me, can’t eat me.

The Old spider in his web he did creep

And he snatched a fly and ate’m for a treat!

Three little flies flying around a web.

Teasing Old Spider, can’t eat me, can’t eat me.

The Old spider in his web he did creep

And he snatched a fly and ate’m for a treat!

Two little flies flying around a web.

Teasing Old Spider, can’t eat me, can’t eat me.

The Old spider in his web he did creep

And he snatched a fly and ate’m for a treat!

One little fly flying around a web.

Teasing Old Spider, can’t eat me, can’t eat me.

The Old spider in his web he did creep

And he snatched a fly and ate’m for a treat!

One full Old Spider full as can be

Slept in his web full of flies was he!

Let’s Make Johnny!
