  • I edited the document so that the words were removed from the find and tick sheet.  The students located the images on the I Spy sheet and then went for a 'Find the Word' walk outside looking for the labelled pictures and writing the word next to the picture.  They loved it!  Thank you!

      Thank you very much for commenting! It's great to hear from you :)
      The checklists are to give you a list of what to find in the pictures! Just tick them off when you've found them :)

  • I will use this as a 'plonky board' for an initial letter sound game - children simply point to something beginning with ... Laminate a few copies and they will be ready to go - perfect for extending children at the end of group times in my nursery class.
    I will probably also enlarge a few of these to A3 and laminate them as a 'look and find' resource for children with English as an Additional Language to help develop vocabulary.

This I Spy activity is perfect for when you want to have a little fun with your children, while testing to see how well they know their letters and sounds, and if they can pick out words beginning with that letter! A fun game that you can get involved in yourself!
