Little plastic spiders seem to be everywhere this time of year, and you might not think of them as a resource you can use in learning activities, but this post from Early Learning Ideas might convince you otherwise.
From using spiders as magnets to spelling, counting and letter recognition activities, you can add a creepy twist to all sorts of classroom projects.
There’s also a link to an emergent reader printable book with spiders to count and color you’ll want to grab for your little ones.
