product information

Learn to spell by matching the pictures with the words.

Great for:
Stimulating the brain
Little hands to enjoy sorting and matching
Encouraging early reading
First steps in spelling
Developing social skills and helping communication
Building confidence and concentration

How to play:
Matching up
Lay the picture and the word cards out and try and match them up. Lets talk about what you see. Get an adult to help you find the word.

Learning the alphabet
Let's put the cards in order. Ask an adult to help you find the next letter, and complete the alphabet together.

Matching up
Separate the cards and give the pictures to your child. The word cards should be held either by an adult or an older child. The person with the words should select a particular word and ask the child to find the corresponding picture. Once found, the child can put the 2 pieces together.

Spell the word
Separate the picture and word cards for an older child to match the pictures with the words, maybe they can be encouraged to try and spell the words. If they are unable to spell a particular word then move to another, returning to the original word later on.
The cards can also be used as a simple shape, word and picture matching activity. See how many they can match up on their own.
Encourage your child to talk about the pictures they see - where might they see them in real life, or start to make up stories.

Pack includes 52 cards.

Sussex, England GB
My 3 year old granddaughter is so keen to learn to read & I wanted something that would match word to picture. So many puzzles I have seen have the word & picture on the same piece & this seemed ideal as they are separate. I was disappointed with it as a learning aid as all the puzzle pieces fit each other. So if my granddaughter does it on her own she has no way of knowing if she has done it right as all the words fit all the pictures. There are colour lines round the picture & word so it doesn't take long before the child realises instead of trying to read the word they can match the colour. This doesn't always work as 2 or 3 words & pictures have the same colour which can result in a mismatch again. As long as you are prepared to do it with them it is an Ok puzzle but you have to think up ways of making it a game otherwise it just becomes a drill. I played it as I-spy for eg. giving her 3 word choices for the monkey picture & saying i-spy something beginning with a 'm' & my granddaughter seems to like that. The pictures are colourful & the cards large & strong. Another problem is once unwrapped it is very hard & time consuming to put the cards back in the box. They have to go in one at a time as apair or they don't fit so my granddaughter can't pack them away. We have had to find a tin for them.
