Children will be able to match names to pictures, pictures to pictures, pictures to riddles, or pictures to traced words. The tracing cards can be laminated, then allow kids to trace with a dry erase marker or a wipe-able marker. That way they can trace over and over.
Some may need guidance reading the riddles. They may have the riddles read to them...which is a great listening skill, too!
This would make a great independent literacy center activity for this age group. This resource allows for differentiation within a early primary unit.
