In grades 1, 2, and 3
First, second, and third graders usually love to play Concentration, a game that tests visual memory. Perhaps because their young brains are so sharp, youngsters can often soundly defeat the adults in the room. Try playing Concentration with your child using words at her reading level.
Using index cards, make two copies of each word, then shuffle the cards and lay them word-side down. Take turns finding matches; the player with the most pairs wins. (In the beginning, you’ll likely have to help your child recognize many words, but give her the chance to try.) As your child becomes familiar with the words in your deck, add more challenging ones.
