Did you know that matching games help build visual discrimination, a skill needed for learning to read? Twice the size of our other matching cards, this set of 18 December images includes religious (Advent & Christmas) and non-religious (winter, decorations, etc) aspects of seasonal celebrations.
Start introducing 2 or 3 sets at a time by laying out 3 very different images and asking your child to find the match. Slowly increase the number of matches available until your child is able to successfully and easily match all nine images correctly.
Practice matching with all cards face up, pre-divided into two groups, and advance through playing a traditional memory match game with all of the cards face down.
For durability, I recommend printing on card stock or mounting on colored construction paper and laminating.
