April 03, 2014

Lesson Overview

Students will use Stages Learning Memory game to practice identifying things that are alike.

Objectives/Goals

  • Identify things that are the same. 
  • Engage in turn taking when working with others. 

Materials

Procedure

Matching Pair

Teacher should take out 3-5 matching pairs. Start off by having students identify the different pets they see. Depending on student’s needs, teacher can provide label. After going through the different pets, have students identify the two cards that are alike. If student is having trouble repeat the process (over days or weeks). Do not move on to Memory game.

Memory

If students are successful with identifying the cards that are alike, with the same 3-5 matching pairs, mix the cards up and turn them over. Model how students can only turn two cards over at a time. Teacher can provide additional support when needed.

When students are ready increase the amount of cards. Make sure to have students identify the pet and matching pair prior to playing Memory. 

Additional Information

If working with multiple children, this is a great way to encourage collaboration and problem solving. Two heads are better then one in Memory! Encourage students to use each other’s names and take turns to flip over the cards.
