Word Match Cards

print knowledge 85This game helps your child recognize words that look the same.

What you need:
Index cards or cards made from construction paper
Marker

What to do:
1. Ask you child to name some words (his name, a pet's name, favorite food, etc.).

2. Write the same word on two cards.

3. Lay the cards out with the words facing your child.

4. Ask your child to find two words that match. Start with just a few pairs of words and build the number.

It's fine if your child doesn't know the words at first, but just matches the cards because they look the same. He's still learning to focus on letter and word similarities -- an important step in learning to read.
