Concept Group 7
It’s hard to believe this was our 7th session. We played the Memory Game or Match. This is the childhood game where pairs of cards are mixed and placed face down. The children take turns picking up two cards to see if they have two cards that are the same. It reinforces the concepts of match, same, different, and pair. Several of the children were familiar with the game. We also had several that weren’t. This game tells a lot about a child’s learning strategy. A couple of children would pick the same two cards for each turn. Others would take two cards at the same time not realizing they could increase their chances by picking one card up and then another card in case it wasn’t what they expected. A couple of the kids that appeared to have difficulty remaining focused had good memories and did better than their peers. This was a pleasant surprise. They must be focusing more than what it appears.
