Matching Games for Learning

I love hands-on learning and I LOVE learning games even more.  They break up the monotony of "school".  My kids don't really feel like it's schoolwork and we all have a good time.  One of the sneakiest games for learning are matching games.  What I really love about it is that other siblings can join in.  Older ones can revisit the concept and younger ones get introduced to the concept without a formal lesson.  I have some of my favorites listed.  They have been really helpful to our family.  In the spirit of being frugal, I only download free or nearly free games.  It's expensive enough to print the game.  I also laminate the pieces for durability.  I have three kids to play with, they have to last.

I have only highlighted a few concepts here but you get the idea.  There are alot more you can look up: multiplication, division, color words, synonyms, antonyms and a whole lot more.  I know I only seemed to link every game to TeachersPayTeachers.com and Currclick.com but I couldn't seem to find any games elsewhere. I hope I've spawned some new ideas for you.

Happy Homeschooling!
