Make And Play – Shape Vocabulary Concentration

Visual learners respond well to images, shapes and colors. Make and play this word shape matching game with your child to reinforce visual learning.

  1. Write the vocabulary words onto construction paper.  Make two copies of each word.
  2. For one set of the words cut the words out in a simple rectangle or square.  Try to make all the words the same size.  For the other set, cut the words out following the outline of the letters.
  3. The game is played by laying all the word cards face down onto a flat surface.  Players take turns turning over first a rectangular-shaped card and then a outline-shaped card.
  4. You can choose to allow a player who makes a correct match to play again, or limit each player to one pair per turn.
  5. Increase the challenge by writing definitions on the rectangular-shaped card instead of the word.
  6. Players can also be required to use the word in a sentence when a pair is made.
