Why Use Partner Pairing Cards?
GIVING KIDS CARDS THAT HAVE ONE WAY OF PAIRING UP CREATES LESS WORK FOR TEACHERS AND RESULTS IN RANDOM PAIRINGS
- This is a fun partner game for preschoolers, just finding pairs and matching up can be your whole activity!
- Perfect for when you want students to work together and have no preference how kids are matched up.
- Using these partner cards saves time, you won’t have to create pairings ahead of time.
- They can also be used as an independent game.
What Else Can These Partner Cards Teach Kids?
If you use the cards during circle time or whole group time, students will learn to wait their turn to be paired up with their food match.
How To Use These Partner Match Up Cards
All you need to do is print the food match up cards onto white card stock and laminate them. Consider taping each card to a popsicle stick. This will help little hands have an easier time holding and keeping track of their card.
Give each child a card (make sure that all cards can be paired up!). Then tell them you will be playing a fun game where each child finds their card’s pair.
I suggest modeling this for younger children. Grab two cards and show children how they match up.
Other Ways To Use the Free Partner Cards:
Need food theme ideas for preschoolers? Use these cards in a sensory bin! Add your favorite filler and have kids find and match the cards.
Put kids in small groups and see how fast they can match up their cards!
Hide or display one half of the cards around the room and have students find the right pairs.
