Benefits Of Playing I Spy
Great Boredom Buster
I Spy games are a wonderful screen free boredom buster.
They require that kids focus on the different size objects in the game box and count how many of each object they find.
In some cases, if you print a variety of different I Spy worksheets you can keep kids busy for hours.
Visual Discrimination Skills
Any type of I Spy activity works on important visual discrimination skills.
An I Spy activity forces children to analyze and compare objects and figure out if they are the same or different. Unlike a
Kinesthetic learning experience where a child learns by physically manipulating an object visual discrimination skills require they organize, sort and keep track of items as they work.
Fine Motor Skills
Gripping a pencil works on fine motor skills by strengthen finger grip and working the small muscles in a child’s hand and wrist.
When a small child completes an I Spy activity they are using their fine motor skills to complete the worksheet.
Our I Spy Christmas worksheet also works on number recognition from 1-15.
This is a great way for especially young learners to master their concept of numbers.
