Literary Matching Games: Exercise Your Memory and Learn About Literature at the Same Time
Literature inspired matching games. Aren't they lovely? While they are geared toward kids, I would play myself if I had enough free time.
Each game consists of twelve fabric tiles. On the front of each is a different hand-painted image - the cover of the novel, the author, and some important symbols/motifs from the story. For example, in my Gatsby game I've painted the book cover, F Scott Fitzgerald, Such Beautiful Shirts, a Daisy, the Yellow Car, and the Eyes of Dr. TJ Eckleburg.
The object of these games is to match each tile. So first things first: mix up the tiles and set them out in a square. For every turn, each player will turn over two tiles with the intent of finding the matching images. If the images do not match, the tiles are turned back over. If they do match, they get to stay out. The winner is the one with the most pairs!
These matching games simultaneously exercise your child's memory and their knowledge of classic literature. I believe that getting acquainted with literature (just recognizing the names and authors) is important in growing your child's literacy. Not to mention it will help down the road in school!
