I Spy Collages
My students love the I Spy books by Walter Wick. They’ve nearly worn out the pages from many of the books! As a result of their interest in reading and in searching for the hidden objects in these books, we decided to make our own “I Spy” collages.
Students work in groups of four to six and create little collages around the room with our own toys, magnets, games, blocks and anything small that they could find. Students can also create collages based on specific themes.
We also make our own classroom I Spy book. I use a digital camera to take pictures of the collages, one for each page of the book. Students then write their own riddles at the bottom of the page. Older students can make more difficult riddles. We also put our pictures of the “I Spy” collages on the TV.
It was great fun the first time, and at the kids’ urging we’ve done more!
