We like to make learning fun. We often do that by playing games. Card games can be used in a variety of ways to help learn things and commit things to memory. Here are some fall themed customizable cards for you to print off, including a matching card box (pillow box) to keep them organized and together.
By modeling a simple GO FISH or MATCHING type game you can customize your cards to practice:
- Math facts
- Vocabulary words
- States and Capitols or abbreviations
- Trivia (any subject)
- Uppercase and lowercase letters
- Early reader words
- Prefixes, suffixes, root words
- Foreign language/English
- Characters & events from the Scriptures
You could also use them to practice ordering things:
- Books in the Scriptures
- Phrases or words for memorization
- Order of Presidents, other leaders or events in history
- Months of the year
Our family is working on learning the order of the books of scripture. To assist with this goal, I’ve used these customizable cards. We order them while singing the memory song. It’s really helped cement the order for us all.
I’ve also made customized cards for History by making card pairs to help us remember things we’ve learned. For example: We’ve learned about Lewis & Clark, Claude Monet, and the Titanic -just to name a few. I made a card for each of those, and then I made another card that listed what I wanted my children to remember about that particular person or event. The idea of this card game is to match up the person(s), place or event card with the corresponding information found on another card. It makes for a fun and quick review.
