Playing “Silly Sentence Match-Ups”

Are you ready? This could get a bit silly!

Silly Match-Ups game cards scattered on table

Select the animal and place cards you want to review with your child. The animals cards are marked with a paw print on the back and the place cards are marked with a compass rose. You’ll notice that the paw print and compass rose symbols are color-coded for each level. Shuffle and place the cards face down in two piles, one for animals and one for places.

Have your child draw one card from each pile.
