How to Play

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