Spider Rings To Practice Position Words

A fun way to teach/practice position words in October...SPIDER RINGS!  In reading groups I give each child a spider ring and call out position words having them practice placing the spider ring in that position.  "Put your spider above your head."  "Put your spider below your chin."  "Put your spider ring beside your face."  The kids loved it!

Then we used the spider ring on our pointer finger to track print as we read this student reader.  Students use their yellow crayon to color the position word and then draw the spider in the correct position to the web.  What a fun way to spend a reading group!  Click Here To Download
