Materials:

photos of each child in class (double prints)
clear contact paper



Instructions:

1. Cover each photo with clear contact paper. If desired, back photos with
construction paper before covering with contact paper.
2. Use the photos for a memory game. Turn the photos face down and
encourage the children to take turns turning them over to find a match.
3. This is great for matching skills as well as learning about their classmates.
More to do Group or Circle Time: This is a great way for children to learn each other’s
names. Cover a coffee can with red contact paper. Put one photo of each
child inside. Sing, “I’m glad I have a little red can to put (child’s name) in; I’d
take her out and kiss, kiss, kiss and put her back again.” Children love this
activity and will soon learn everyone’s name.
Home-School Connection: Extend this idea to include photos of parents.
