Teaching pre-reading observation and visual discrimination skills can be fun using this newly created Ricardo's SNAP card game.

Great for table top game centres, Daily 5, extension activity or rewards.

Suitable for all ages in need of learning same/different visual discrimination skills - essential for developing good pre-reading/pre-writing skills.

This game uses pictures of Ricardo doing different activities that the children will need to look carefully at to spot the differences and make a pair to SNAP!!

It encourages good visual identification and recognition of what is the same and what is different in each picture.

Also great for encouraging development of social skills like turn taking, rule following and good sportsmanship.

As children, can also have the opportunity to cut out the cards and game instruction page themselves, this aspect is good for addressing fine motor control.

Game Set includes:

instruction card, 40 playing cards: 10 different sets of 4 each and a back side of the playing card is included or the back side can be kept blank.

Enjoy printing the game out on thin white card or normal paper and gluing onto back of cereal or biscuit packets.
