Memory Games - Shapes - Memory Matching Games
1) Preschool and Kindergarten
2) Grade: 1
My goal as a teacher has always been to create educational resources that inspire students to get excited about learning.
Matching Memory Games are known to improve memory and concentration in students. This Shapes Memory Game was created to help students learn the shapes and the shape words through play. The game is educational and entertaining for students. Matching Memory Games are great for teachers that need to adapt games for multiple skill levels. For beginners use fewer cards as they advance incorporate more cards. For advanced students use all the cards. The game can be played individually, with a partner, or in small groups.
The game cards were designed so that students could sit across from one another and both of the students could read the shape words on the game cards.
This Shapes Memory Game has a unique twist on a classic style memory game. The game can be used with or without a die. The die was incorporated into the game to add another level of excitement! If a player rolls a 1, 2, 3, or 4, he or she can turn over the number of cards equal to the number they rolled on the die. For example: If a player rolls a 3 they turn over 3 cards or if a player rolls a 4 they turn over 4 cards. However, if a player rolls a 5 or 6, they lose a turn.
BONUS: USE GAME CARDS AS FLASH CARDS
