Shark I Spy Activity
I spy activities are so much fun for kids of all ages. They are a great way to practice all sorts of skills:
- Visual discrimination
- Math skills, such as counting
- Vocabulary development
What Is Included
This printable activity includes two pages.
- The first page features various shark and shark-related images for your child to count.
- The second page is a place for your child to record how many of each picture they find.
What You Will Need
If you have a computer with a printer, you can create this activity for your child today. Here are some things you will need and a few additional suggestions.
- Printer paper
- Something to write with
- If you would like to make the page a little sturdier, you could use card stock paper
- If you would like to make the activity reusable (and save yourself some printer ink), you could laminate them using laminating pouches and a laminator or just use page protectors
- If you are making it reusable, wet erase markers would really come in handy
How to Use the Shark I Spy Activity
- Print out both pages for your child.
- Have your child carefully look at the first page to see how many of each picture they can find. If it helps, they can mark each of the pictures as they count them.
- Your child can then record the number for each on the second page.
How Can You Modify the Activity for Younger children?
For younger children, an adult could write the number for each picture. Your child could also just look to find the different pictures for fun without recording anything at all.
How to Store the Shark I Spy Activity
Storing the pages is very easy. If you are using page protectors, you could keep them in a 3-ring binder for future use. Or you could keep the pages in an expanding file folder, along with other printable activities for your child.
