Throwback Thursday..NO PREP Matching Game!

Is it 

THURSDAY?

Yippey!!!

Happy  Friday  EVE!  🙂

Just a short note on a

 SUPER FUN GAME

to help your kiddos

practice spelling / vocabulary / HFW words!

Do you remember 

THE  MATCHING  GAME?

Well…. I have “tweaked” it for my classroom.

Materials needed:

2   colors   of    BLANK   PAPER!

Pencil

Dark  Crayon

THAT’S IT!

Easy  Peasy!

Now  What?

1.   Have  Kiddos  FOLD  their  paper  into 16  squares.

(  Fold it horizontal twice  &  Vertical  twice!)

2.  Use pencil to TRACE  the  fold lines.

(This ensures a BOX for kids to write their words in.)

3. I write the words on MY paper 

and use my DOC CAMERA for kids to see, so they can copy.

4.  Cut SQUARES apart into word cards.

5.  Kids stack their cards.

6. Find  a  PARTNER  with  different colored  cards.

7. They place ALL cards words DOWN.

8.  Rock, paper, scissors.  Winner  goes  first.

9. Turn over ONE of their cards & ONE of their partner’s cards.

10.  Read…read…read!  Do they MATCH?

11. If they match…they stack BOTH cards!

12. If not, turn them over and try again!

No WINNERS or LOSERS…

ALL DONE?     PLAY  AGAIN!  🙂

SO  FUN!

We usually have 6 spelling words.

I  ALWAYS  add  MORE!

I  am teaching  word  strategies.

NOT  MEMORIZING  FOR A TEST!

Keep  them learning!

Have FUN!
