Springy Spiders - Tried and True Thursday



I've not done very well with linking up for Week 4 of Summer Bloggin' with The Teaching Tribune but I would like to share a quick post today for Tried and True Thursday.

Many years ago, I was at a car boot sale and I came across a Early Learning Centre game called Springy Spiders. Inside were four colourful spiders on elastic and some bugs with numbers on. The numbers only go up to 6, but it was the spiders I was more interested in.


Over the years, I've made several different sets of bugs to use with the spiders. Tricky words, the alphabet, numbers, cvc words, initial sound pictures, the possibilities are endless! All you have to do is attach a small circle of velcro (the hooks side) to the top of each bug and then the spiders can stick to them as they bounce! 

As it takes a while to play whole class, I usually have a couple of bugs on the go at once. A great starter, review or independent activity. Unfortunately my google search has not come up with any obvious places to buy the spiders now, but I think ebay may still sell some.
