Your students will love using magnifying glasses to find word family words in this 35 paged differentiated I-Spy activity. It is tiered to meet the various readiness levels of your students. There are 10 different I-Spy pages and a corresponding recording sheet for each I-Spy. Five short vowel sound CVC I-Spy pictures are appropriate for those students just beginning to understand word families and blending sounds to make words. The second tier of 5 short vowel CCVC pictures is suited best for those students who are blending consonants and are more familiar with word families. Please make sure you pre-assess your students to know which tier will be appropriate for them.
Teachers: Please print out and laminate all pages. I prefer to laminate and use dry erase markers for my response sheets but there is a black and white version for those of you that prefer to make individual copies. There is an attached “I Can . . . ” sheet to help students be more independent with this activity.
I certainly hope you enjoy this activity. Please consider the other many differentiated activates available in my store or by following my blog.
