To use this activity page, print one for each student. Have children look at the bat mom holding the bat baby in the first box.

Now, have them count how many times that same image shows up in the box at the top of the page.

If your child has trouble keeping track, let them color the images as they find them. Or, they can cover the images with buttons.

Now, write that number in the box at the bottom of the page.

Skills Taught

Counting – Kids will practice counting to ten as they hunt for each of the four images in this I Spy game.

Number Writing – After kids count the images, they’ll write the numbers in one of the four boxes at the bottom of the game.
