We have been working on shapes for a long time! Last year, I shared with you a free printable mini-pack for shapes with some fun games and this Shape I Spy for Preschooler coordinates perfectly with it! Your preschoolers will love counting the shapes and discovering that things in “real life” have those shapes! Download the I Spy for your kids today and then check out all of the cool ideas from the rest of the #TeachECE team!
Materials needed for the Shape I Spy Printable:
Laminating pouches (optional, but recommended to use more than once)
To use: Have your child count how many of each shape is in the I Spy and write the answer on the recording page.
Because keeping track of numbers can be difficult for little learners, especially when they are focusing on another skill like finding matching shapes, I recommend have the child cross off each picture as it is counted. Or you can place a small game marker on each shape as it is discovered and then count. (For example: Find and cover all the circles, then count how many pictures were covered.) Then remove the game markers and start over with another shape.
