I Spy a counting game is a fun resource that helps to develop understanding of numbers up to ten. It is designed for use on the interactive whiteboard.
In the game, children find and count the number of items that owl sees on each slide.
The items to be found are shown in grey at the top of each slide. As they click each item found, an item at the top of the slide is coloured. It is easy for children to see when all items have been found.
The resource supports children’s learning to:
count by ones
count with one-to-one correspondence
supply the missing addends (How many have we found? How many more do we need to find?)
recognise numbers, numerals and words
The colourful slide can also be used for playing other “I Spy” and vocabulary building games.
