My Three loves to play the transportation memory game I made. So I decided to build on that and throw some counting into our next memory game. Today I’m sharing a free printable memory game which will help your child learn to count groups of 1-10. We’re doing the letter M – so I made Monster Memory!
Learn to count with this monster matching game!
My Three likes to count, but it’s not something he does often. Counting groups past 5 is still tricky for him. So I knew this game was just what we needed.
I mixed up the twenty cards, set them out in rows, and we took turns flipping over two cards. Sometimes I had to remind my Three to keep the cards in the same place they were when he began his turn. He also needed reminders that he only had one chance to find a match!
Sometimes he started counting over when he got to a new line. For example, for four monsters he counted, “1, 2, 1, 2.” We counted together quite a bit. I helped him point to the monsters as he counted. With just ten matches to find, the game was just the right length for this 3 1/2 year old. We’ll definitely be pulling it out again!
Here’s a sample page from the download. You’ll receive 20 matching cards for the numbers 1-10.
