Environmental Print: Memory & Matching Games are a wonderful way for children to learn about their surroundings and learn to read! Environmental Print surrounds us in our home and in our community. Environmental Print is found in our everyday lives, such as on:
>Labels on Food
>The logo of our favorite restaurant
>Names of Buildings
>Labels on Toys
>Labels on Household Items
Environmental Print is usually the first print children recognize. It plays a strong role in helping children begin to understand that letters and symbols mean something. The Environmental Print: Memory & Matching Games help children recognize Environmental Print, which will make them feel successful at "reading," and will motivate them to want to read more. These games can be played in large groups, small groups, in pairs, used in Literacy Centers, etc. The pictures provided can be used on bulletin boards and/or word walls, and even made into an Environmental Class Book to keep in the classroom library.
The Environmental Print: Memory & Matching Games include:
>Information about Environmental Print
>10 Duplicated Environmental Print Pictures for the Memory Game
>10 Environmental Print Pictures with their Matching Words for the Matching Game
