This is such a cute book and it teaches students some things about spiders also. I made some anchor charts with my students on Friday. We made predictions, wrote down facts from the story, and verified our predictions. Students used post it notes to add ideas to the anchor chart.
I really like this book because it is from the spider's point of view. It would be a great way to teach point of view. There are other diary books that can be compared to this story, like Diary of a Fly and Diary of a Worm. Worm and Fly are other characters in this book.
