This common core aligned I-spy activity is differentiated to meet the readiness levels of all your students. There are three colored I Spy Picture Mats (there are also black and white versions of each of these if you prefer). Each picture provides your students with the opportunity to search for CVC, CCVC/CVCC or CVCe words using a magnifying glass. For each I-spy picture there are several recording sheets from which you can choose for your students to complete.
These I Spy packets are a classroom favorite, and I’m sure your students will love the challenge of ‘spying’ all the hidden words. If you would like to know more about this packet, please download the preview page to see all that is included.
