I bought this pack of cards from the Target dollar spot awhile ago and B has been interested in them lately. I love that it gives us the opportunity to talk about same and different, but there are so many possibilities on each card that I think it is a bit much for B.
So I decided to see what he understood about “same” and “different” using objects from the playroom.
Which two are the same? Why? Which one is different? Why?
Then I told him to ask me. I figured I’d really be able to tell if he understood the concept if he could put together a question for me.
He started with this group of objects. Yes! He gets it! The banana and the letter are the same color.
Ask me one more REALLY tricky one!
Hmmm ok maybe he doesn’t get it. I paused and answered, “Oh I know the alligator and the grapes are both small and the container is big.” Very tricky! =)
We had a great time playing this Same and Different game together. It was quick, easy, and simple. We will continue to play this game and hopefully B will build on what he knows about things that are the same and things that are different!
