How to play
- Divide the class into pairs.
- Explain and demonstrate that children should lay out two sets of vocabulary cards in random order face down on the desk.
- Child A turns over one of the cards and names what’s in the picture, eg Witch! or says a sentence, eg I’ve got the witch! They then turn over another card and repeat the procedure. If the two cards are the same, Child A keeps them. If they are not the same, Child A puts them back face down exactly where they were.
- Child B then has the next turn. The child with most cards at the end of the game is the winner.
