I Spy 2 Sounds of Y

I'm excited to say that I just posted my most recent I Spy word work activity!  We all know that as a vowel Y can be one of those tricky letters.  Sometimes it sounds like long e and other times like long i.  In this activity students need to get their magnifying glasses out and search for words then decide which sound they hear.
As you can see there are four pictures.  Hidden in each picture are 10 teeny tiny words.  Five have the long e sound (as in happy) while the others have the long i sound (as in my).  I have included a choice of 3 recording sheets to allow for easy differentiation.

My students get so excited when I get the magnifying glasses out.  I hope yours do too.  This activity is available at my TPT store.
As usual, I'll send a copy to the first 2 followers who comment on this post.

Happy searching!!!
