What to do

  1. Before introducing the game, print rhyming picture cards and glue to heavy duty construction paper. If possible, laminate the cards. Shuffle the cards and place them all face down.
  2. How many of you have ever played the game Memory before? Good. Today we are going to play Memory. However, instead of looking for matching pictures, we are going to look for matching rhymes.
  3. The first player is going to flip over two cards. If your two cards rhyme, then you can keep them. If they don’t rhyme, then you must turn them back over. If you find a rhyme during your turn, you get to go again. If you do not find a rhyme, your turn is over and the next person in the circle goes.
  4. You want to find as many rhyming sets as you can. The person with the most cards at the end is the winner.
  5. Remember, you must pay attention when other people are taking a turn! Everyone who is playing the game will help decide if the match is correct or incorrect. If you give an incorrect answer, choose another student in your group to tell you why your answer is wrong.
  6. If a student is struggling, call on him individually in order to ensure he gets practice with the skill.
  7. Observe small groups of students play the game. For students who struggle, give them help and make a note in an Activity Log.
