This I-Spy activity is a different twist on a class favorite of mine. Instead of merely reading words and recording what they find, in this activity students will use magnifying glasses to inspect their different bugs. When they inspect their bugs they will notice a picture hidden on it. They will then sound out the CVC word and write it on their recording sheet. This activity is ideal for differentiating instruction to meet the various learning profiles of your students. I prefer to cut the out and place them in a sensory/sand table with Easter grass to make the activity more appealing and interesting. This will appeal to your visual/interpersonal learners. My students work in pairs and the first one to fill their recording sheet is the top is the top bug catcher.
However, you can merely cut the bugs out along the lines and place the cards in a spring-like bucket and have students pull the cards out and inspect them, recording their answers as they pull each card. This way will appeal to your students who display intrapersonal intelligence. And finally, you can also post the cards around the room and have students use a clipboard to write the room and search for the bugs. Your kinesthetic learners will love this version.
