A fun activity to encourage the development of oral language.
Project the I Spy Objects Jar on the screen in your classroom. Encourage students to take turns orally describing different objects from the jar. For a challenge, ask the students to draw the objects and write words or phrases to describe each object.
A full set of instructions is included in the download.
This activity can be used in small groups or as a whole class.
Use the drop-down menu to choose between the PDF or Google Slide version.
Please note: The Google Slide version only includes the instructions and I Spy Jar. It does not include the activity worksheet.
