My students absolutely LOVE I-Spy books so I think that they will really enjoy practicing phonics skills while searching through these adorable pictures.
I created these beginning sounds I-Spy Mats for my students to use during Daily 5.
I might also use them for:
Guided Reading Warm-Up
Small Group Work
Depending on your students' ability you might include a basket of small plastic chips or bears for students to mark when they find an item beginning with the selected letter. As they grow or are ready to do more have your students use one of the recording sheets to draw and/or write the objects that they find.
Each mat includes around 16-18 adorable pictures. On each mat is the highlighted letter and 4-8 objects that begin with that letter sound.
