Tip #16 Mix and match memory game

Another fun game is a Mix and Match Memory game. Like the flashcards, the fun is in the making of them.

Have your child or student help find pictures of things in the story. Remember, they need to find two identical pictures of each one.

Cut them out and glue them onto 3x5 cards.

Turn them upside down on the table and mix them up.

Now have your child or student find the matching pairs.

An easier version of this is to place the cards face up on the table, let them study the pictures and where they are for one minute.

Turn them over where they are.

Have the child or student turn over the pairs as fast as they can.

Here’s one sheet from mine for “Zooprise Party / Fiesta Zoorpresa”. You can find this complete game and other things to take my book beyond reading at Laughing Zebra - Books for Children

See you tomorrow!

Cute idea, Joy. That's always a fun game for little ones, and it would be even better if they can relate it to a favorite book.
