Teaching Tuesday--matching

How would have thought?  I just found a great idea for teaching letters.    What about a game of "Memory"?

Just pick up two packages of ABC flashcards at Walmart or Target, or wherever you can get them. They're really inexpensive and you can do a lot with them.  Divide the deck so you aren't working with too many cards.  For example, work with just the letters A-J one day.  Do the same with the second deck, choosing the same letters.  Turn them all over.  Have your child turn over two cards at a time, saying the name of each.  If they're a match, the child gets to keep them.  If not, have your child turn them back over.  Now you get a turn.  Whoever gathers the most matches wins.  

Hope this works well for you.  I'm off to pick up a second set of cards.  Let me know how you do.
