-Picture Cards: This activity can be used in many ways. There are 3 versions of cards. One version is just pictures., one version has pictures and words, and one version has only words. One activity that can be done is the game of Memory. Students can mix the cards up and lay them face down. The goal is to make rhyming pairs. Each turn, they will flip two cards over. If they rhyme, the student gets to keep them. If they don’t rhyme, the student will flip them back over and their turn is done. They could also be used as a sorting activity. Students could sort the cards onto the correct word family mat. These cards could also be used as flash cards!
