Free!Match Mine Classroom Sets
Match Mine is a fun and easy higher-level thinking game and a great way to teach primary math concepts. Students pair up to play. One student, the Sender, arranges game pieces on a game board. For Astro Talk (left), the Sender arranges geometric shapes on a game board. The Sender describes his or her layout to his or her partner on the opposite side of a file folder barrier. "Put your circle near the top of the board. Place the triangle on top of the circle with the long side touching the circle and the point pointing up…" As your students play Match Mine, they learn directional skills (on top, below, above, next to), vocabulary (circle, triangle, hexagon), verbal communication skills, direction giving and taking, and active listening. Each game comes complete with 9 sets of games and game pieces. A great cooperative center idea. Each game designed to teach different concepts. $5 each
