Free Drawing Prompt Inspired by The Very Busy Spider
by Alana Pedalino
So many animals visited the very busy spider over the course of her very busy day! Can your students remember who stopped by?
After reading The Very Busy Spider, encourage your students to draw each of the spider’s animal visitors in this free printable web prompt.
Of course, it would be hard for the spider to catch all these animals in the same way that she caught the very pesky fly—but this simple and fun activity is great for helping students to experience a bit of the spider’s dedication to web-making firsthand! Plus students will:
• Express their creativity
• Develop reading-comprehension skills
• Practice sequencing
How did your students’ webs turn out? We’d love to see! If you’re able, please share with readers and other Scholastic Book Clubs teachers on Facebook and Instagram by using the hashtag #ScholasticBookClubs.
