Hello and thanks for checking out this fun resource I made for students at my library and am so excited to share!
This download contains directions for memory, directions for topical/thematic checkout, and six sets of playing cards. That means there are 72 pairs of unique images included.
While there are most likely many other purposes for these pages (like playing "Go Fish" or using them to prompt writing or conversation), I have created them with two purposes in mind.
1. Memory - This is a great activity to play with 2-4 students at a station. My advice would be to print each of the sets on a different color of paper before cutting. However, each set is differentiated by the shape included within the open book.
Never played memory? Good thing directions are included in within this resource! Included are six games with twelve pairs per game (that means 24 students are accounted for within one set).
2. Topical/Thematic Checkout - I've found that once students are familiar with the library, many of them tend to checkout from the same sections every time they're in (and also pair up with the same friends). In order to mix things up, I created this activity to require students to work with a partner to find at least two resources based on an image. The directions are included and can be used with electronic or analog materials!
Please message me if you have any questions, comments, or feedback. I love hearing how things are working, what's successful, and what needs some editing. And, I'm always happy to clarify anything that may cause confusion.
