This activity targets abstract categories. It can be played in a couple different ways. Use the category cards on pages 4-8 (there are 20 categories) and have your students name items that fit the category. You can also give each student 2-4 category cards and mix up the heart cards on pages 9-18. Students can take turns pulling out cards to see if any match the categories he/she has. Watch out for the cards that will require you to put one back (page 19)!
The heart cards can also be used to describe attributes. Use the sentence strips on page 20 to help your students expand their utterances.
Homework sheets (pages 20-24) can be sent for additional practice! One is blank, so you can fill in what you need to.
Answer key is on page 3.
-set a timer and see how fast your students can match all the cards to their respective category
-see which items might fit more than one category
