Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Number Matching/Memory Game
There are several games I like to play with these cards. The first game I play with the students is a simple matching game. They have to match the numeral to the corresponding number of coconuts. I also have the students practice matching the numeral to the number word.
Once the students can proficiently match the numeral to the corresponding number of coconuts, I use the cards in a center as a memory game. The cards are laid out face down and the students take turn flipping two cards to find a match. As the students get the hang of the game, I add the number words to the mix.
I like to put all three sets of cards in a pocket chart center for the students to practice matching the numeral to the number word and the picture.
If the students have a good grasp of their numbers, I like to have them use the cards to play a game of "Go Fish".
