Memory Game

To Prep: Print on the white side of scrapbook paper and laminate. The scrapbook paper makes it so that the kids can’t see through the cards to cheat. Cut out the cards.

To Play: Place the cards face-down on the table. The first player turns over two cards to find a match. If a match is found they try again, if a match is not found it’s the next player’s turn. Winner has the most matches at the end of the game.

Sorting

To Prep: Use the same cards that you prepared for the memory game. You can also print extra copies for more opportunities for practice.

Patterning

To Prep: Again use the same cards that you prepared for the memory game and sorting activities.
