Aaaarrgghh! Spider! is a short and sweet story about a spider who finds a family. Here are a few activities you can pair with the book.
About the Book
Don’t let this lonely spider frighten you! She just wants to be a family pet—and she thinks she would make a better pet than the typical dog or cat. But every time this clever spider tries to impress her chosen family, she scares them instead, until the day she unwittingly enchants them. Aaaarrgghh! Spider! spins a lively tale about one creature’s efforts to find her place.
This book can be hard to find every October, but sometimes you can find it on Amazon. I would definitely check your school or local library first.

AAAARRGGHH! SPIDER! ACTIVITIES
I put together a few resources you can pair with Aaaarrgghh! Spider! First, there are 6 questions to help guide your discussion.
Next, I added this chart. Students track the family’s reactions to the spider’s actions.
Finally, I was inspired by the front cover to add a directed drawing your kids will enjoy. Students will follow the steps, add some extra details, and color.
