Flannel Friday: Spooky Spiders Screen Makeover

Sharing another missing flannelboard turned slideshow! Needs must. I don’t have a picture of my original flannel set, but I plan on making a new one soon. In the meantime…


Slide: One small purple spider hangs from a web.

This is a fun counting up song for an insect or fall-themed storytime:

One Spooky Spider Went Out to Play

Tune: Five Little Ducks

One spooky spider went out to play

On a web so far away.

They had such enormous fun,

They called for another spider to come…

Oh, spider! (yell)


This flannel (or slideshow) presents many opportunities for math talk! Such as:

  • We had one spider. One more spider came. Now how many spiders do we have?
  • Which spider is the biggest?
  • Which spider is the smallest?


Slide: Five spiders of various colors and sizes hang from a web.

Please note that these screen flannel slideshows were presented to children primarily ages 4-9 in my Preschool and Family Evening Storytimes.

Flannel Friday is sharing Extreme Makeovers all fall long! Give an old flannel a fresh look and share via the Flannel Friday Tumblr. Submissions will be rounded up and shared in December. New to Flannel Friday? Learn more here!
