Ideas for learning games:
- print this page.
- glue a sheet of construction paper to the back of the page
- Cut the page into the 'squares' as indicated
- reconstruct the 'lines' like a puzzle - example - place all the 'red' words together. 

Play your own version of Concentration - any two squares that are the same word meaning can be matched. (Remove one square from each word with a picture option. Dealer's choice!)
