Fall is officially my FAVORITE season! I love the chilly weather, the sweet smell of apple cider donuts, and the gorgeous pumpkin colored leaves that blanket my backyard. My kids also love all things fall (especially the yummy food part). As a way to get in the harvest spirit, I have created a I Spy game that helps with visual discrimination and includes adorable fall pictures that children will love!
Learning About I Spy Games For Kids:
I SPY PRINTABLE GAMES
ASKING STUDENTS TO PRACTICE VISUAL DISCRIMINATION SKILLS CAN HELP THEM ANSWER QUESTIONS LIKE:
- Where did I last see that picture?
- What colors are in the picture?
- What object is similar to the one I’m looking for?
It’s important for children to practice visual discrimination activities, like I Spy preschool games, in order to build working memory and oral language skills.
The great thing about these I Spy game printables is that the download comes with many different games boards so that each game is different.
The fall objects included in this eye treasure hunt include apples, pie, trees, corn cobs, cupcakes, pumpkins, sunflowers, and so many more adorable harvest images.
How do you fit this special project into your day?
In addition to learning about memory skills here are some more ideas for what you can teach about using the I Spy fall printables:
- Similarities and differences
- Vocabulary words
- Positional words and direction
- Counting and less/more
