Use the Spark Actions Matching Cards to play various games that improve language and motor skills while having fun! Activity ideas include:
MOVE IT: Imitate the fun movement illustrated on the card!
FIND IT: Search and find to match the correct action card. Spread the large set of action cards on the floor (beginners-face up; advanced-face down) and use the second set of smaller cards as a reference.
LEARN IT: Children can struggle with learning verbs, especially irregular past tense verbs. Use the action cards to teach action words. Model the action for children as an extra visual prompt to help with the learning process. Have children formulate a sentence for the picture card to practice using verbs in sentences and proper sentence structure.
MATCH IT: Shuffle cards and place face side down on a flat surface. Players take tuns selecting and turning 2 cards over on each turn. If they are the same and 'match,' the player keeps the set of cards. If they do not match, the cards are turned over and the next player takes a turn. The player with the most card sets at the end of the game is the winner.
ACT IT: Select an action card without showing it to the other players. Act out the action while the other children take turns guessing the correct action.
