Today is also known as Read Across America Day and my school actually celebrates all week with theme days and activities!
This is a fun memory game with 6 of Seuss’s most memorable characters: the Cat in the Hat, the Lorax, the Sutherland Sisters, Sam I Am, and the Grinch! It’s available for download at my Teachers Pay Teachers store, just clink the picture above.
I printed on construction paper, laminated and cut for lots of lasting use! My second graders loved it and I even sent one with my daughter to play with her friends at the sitter’s house today.
This is a great way for little ones to get started playing their first games and build those important nueral paths where visual memory and concentration are strengthened. Memory games also build fine motor skills by trying to flip the cards over.
Another easy way to make a memory game for about $2 for younger children, is to put those bubbly stickers on the inside of small tupperware lids. Here is a game I made this winter with stickers from Frozen.
I like to use the extra small, rectangular container lids you can buy at the dollar store in a 6 pack. Sometimes they are even available in fun colors! Then I use the actual containers as blocks, molds for play dough, or pretend tea parties!
Look at these “green eggs and ham” made by one of my parents to go along with their read aloud! All you need is a box of white powdered donuts, green chocolate eggs (so easy to find right now with St. Patrick’s Day coming soon) and red cupcake liners for the ham! Genius, delicious and nut-free!
