Memory Game

Lower and upper-elementary:

This is another game idea I got at my summer training. This is a color memory matching game where the children call the number and the color.

These are yellow index cards. I wrote the numbers 0-21 and paper clipped the colors behind the numbers. I have two white, two red, two yellow, etc... The children call the number, turn the card, say the color, call another number, say the color. If the colors match they pull those cards out.

I've observed the children do very well with the colors but some have trouble with the numbers. Once they feel comfortable with 0-21, I will go to higher numbers. I plan to do the memory game with the animals and class items we have already learned.

As shelf work I have left this work. Coloring by number - the Turkey, in Spanish.

Hi, I wonder if you can teach kids language in Spain/Italy using the phonics as the English (pink/blue/green series). Care to share? Thanks

Hi Joan,
I would say "yes". I am doing a little research right now on that. I've thought about that before but had no luck finding information. I got a number on a lady that did her Montessori Training in Mexico. I am going to talk to her about it and post about it.
