how to play

  • Put your set of flashcards in the box. Hand out a set of flashcards to individual kids.
  • Students place their cards on their desks face up in any order.
  • To begin the game, reach into the box and pull out any card. Look at the picture on it and say, for example, I spy a bear dressed for winter.
  • Kids should hold up the correct card.
