Reach in a bag, pull out a letter. Spell “the” and choose a puppy. The first one to fill their ten frame with puppies….wins!!! Have the students take turns picking letters out of a container. Once they gather the letters t, h, e, and can spell the, they earn a puppy. Have the players place a puppy in their ten frames to help keep track of how many they have won. The first to get 10 puppies wins or whoever has the most when it is time to end the game. Goes great with the story: PLEASE,PUPPY,PLEASE by Spike Lee.
