Developed by language, early childhood and technology experts at NextSense, Incy Wincy Spider is a highly interactive educational app designed to develop listening and language skills in young children, through play, animated games and engaging sounds.

For parents, carers and educators, Incy Wincy Spider includes strategies and techniques, including instructional videos, so you can customise according to your child's language level. Games are not compatible with iPad VoiceOver screen reader.

Ideas

This section provides strategies and techniques, including instructional videos on how to use Incy Wincy Spider to develop listening and language skills. This is achieved through interactive play, craft, and ideas on how to sing the song differently. These ideas are grouped together depending on your child’s language level:

  • Emerging language
  • Putting words together
  • Putting sentences together

Interactive games

There are two fully animated games that target different levels of listening and language skills. With help from mum or dad, your child can choose to play a game that either consolidates or extends their current listening and language abilities. The games are:

  • Dress Incy Wincy: Dress Incy Wincy to match the weather. This game expands your child’s vocabulary on different kinds of weather (sunny, rainy, snowy) and the clothes you wear for each.
  • Find the opposites: Help Incy Wincy explore the backyard to find objects that are the opposite, e.g. tall tree / short tree. This game introduces the concept and vocabulary related to things that are the opposite.

PLEASE NOTE: Games are not compatible with iPad VoiceOver screen reader.
