Animal matching (2 - 3 year olds)

Develop your child's language by letting them recognise images corresponding to the words.


Home Learning

You will need

You will just need several duplicate animal images.

What to do

'When you are happy' book In our French classes, we used images from one of the students’ favourite stories: ‘Quand tu es content’ (When you are happy). Thus, students can enjoy finding peers, looking for the animal corresponding to the word “monkey”, “mouse” or “elephant”, or you can play this in a more advanced way as a “memo” game. In this case, turn the pictures over, and ask your child to find the peers using their memory.
