Have you ever found that, when working with memory games in groups, the students never pick the cards with their target? I've changed up the way I play memory games to control that more. First - I usually don't use matching cards. GASP! What am I up to? As I've learned more about literacy, I have realized that I need to provide more written support. At the beginning of the session, I pass out the cards according to goal. For example, if a student working on blend reduction might get "front" and "through"; a student working on opposites would get "far" and "near"; and a student working on fluency would get "up" and "out". The students hold the cards in their hand and look at the pictures. The matching set, either the pictures without words or the words only are laid face-down on the table. That way, the students are looking for the words with their particular objective.
Here are some preview pages. First up are pictures with words.
Texas shapes with words only.
