How to use this teaching resource

  • Keep full size or print smaller for matching games.
  • If you have them on the wall – pop a piece of wool or string on one of the sets and children have to place the other end of the string on the matching word.
  • Hand a card to each child – they have to then find their matching word partner.
  • Play ‘I have , who has…’ – each child needs 2 cards for this. One child starts off – ‘I have ‘tired’, who has ‘sleepy’? – ‘tired’ child places it on chart , ‘sleepy’ child answers and places their card on chart and says their other card – ‘ I have …..’ who has etc etc…..
  • You can make these words smaller size by using the reduction settings on your printer and just printing off black and white copies, these smaller sizes are great for cut and paste activities .
  • When not being used on a wall display, place them in labelled boxes (small wash powder boxes or yoghurt containers work well, or hanging pockets for continued ‘grab and go’ games and writing reference.
  • Why IMMERSE Your Children in Words....
