You can either print and laminate the rhyme poem poster, or display it on your Smart Board, if it’s near your circle time area. Read the rhyme poem with students before you start playing the game and have them repeat it.
The game pieces are cards. You’ll want to print these on cardstock and laminate them. You can set up the cards in rows in a pocket chart, on the floor in the middle of your circle time rug, or add the rough side of velcro to the back and put on a flannel board (place velcro on top of card so you can still put the smaller ”hiding” card behind it).
I hope you enjoy adding these games to your circle time!
