I Spy Valentine's Day Words

In December I was sooooo jealous when I heard that some of you were done before me.  But today I am glad we went until the 21st because I still have a few more days of vacay left.  Yay!!!!  I am so enjoying the break and trying to make use of every last minute! 

I've had a few inquiries about my Valentine's Day math stations which I promise I am working on and hope to have posted in the next few days.  Stay tuned!

In the meantime I've created a new I Spy activity to add to my collection. 

My students get so engaged when they are using magnifying glasses so I think they'll enjoy these ones as we get closer to Valentine's Day.  In each picture there are 8 Valentine words printed teeny tiny.  Students need to use a magnifying glass to find the words and then record them on one of the two recording sheets.  They are usually working on this while I am doing guided reading with other groups and they take such pride in finding the words and printing them as neatly as they can - and they are so quiet, who can ask for more? 

This activity is available at my TPT store but I will send a copy to the first 2 followers who leave a comment on this post with their email.


  1. Looks great! I'd love to have a copy. I think this would be a great activity for my 2nd graders to do with their kindergarten buddies - so much fun!
