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!)
