How to Play

Where’s the Spider? is a game for centers or whole group instruction where a spider is hidden behind a web. A poem is chanted where the student(s) must say the letter they think the spider is behind. Once guessed, the letter is removed. If the spider is behind the web, then the spider must be hidden again to play further. If the spider is not behind the web, then the poem is chanted again and a new letter is guessed. This game has letters in both capital and lowercase forms.
