Free Summer I-Spy

I spy sunshine, I spy ice cream, I spy flip flops, I spy SUMMER! Can you spy (see) Summer yet where you live? Let the fun Summer learning commence with this FREE Summer I-spy printable activity!

FREE printable no-prep Summer theme I spy game for preschoolers and kindergarten kids to learn while having fun.

See how many of each picture you can "spy", count it then write that number in the blocks below. Can you see the hidden pattern? I-spy activities are not just for fun, it is educational too! It develops visual perception and discrimination- finding the different pictures. Counting and number skills are also used when the pictures are counted and then the numeral is written down accordingly. Here the skill of identifying the pattern is also addressed.

This (free)Summer I-spy printable has two versions, one is a bit simpler and only counts up to 5, whereas the other one has more pictures and counts up to 8. Use the simpler version with younger children or those with special needs. 

How to prepare this activity:

Simply print the page you will need for your child. Laminate it if you wish, or use a plastic pocket. Provide a whiteboard (dry-erase) marker. Ready to use!

How to use this activity:

This activity can easily be completed independently. However, a tip you can give the child is to cross out the pictures already counted. Because the pictures are randomly placed, it could be difficult to keep track of which picture was already counted, so marking it helps. It is not necessary to count in order of the pictures below, but it does help to do it systematically, then nothing can be missed. After completion, ask the question: did you see the pattern? Each time there was 1 more picture! Some children might pick up easily on this, others might need help "discovering" the pattern.

Have fun learning this Summer with this free Summer I-spy printable activity!
