Preparation:

2. In turn players flip 2 cards face up in an attempt to reveal a capital letter and its matching lowercase letter.

- If a match is revealed the player takes possession of the pair of cards and has another turn.

Things to Think About: 

‘Don’t turn over the card you are sure of first. Turn over the one you are sure of second.’ Why might this be a good strategy?

So you really don’t know where a card is early in the game. Is it better to guess and maybe get a pair and show your opponent where a new card is? Is it better to turn over a card you definitely know so your opponent doesn’t get any new information?

Before the Game: 

Revise the conventions of capital letters - point them out in writing and on wall displays.

Variations: 

Change the number of cards started with to match the needs and skills of the players.

Play as a solitaire game. For each upturned pair which are not a match add a counter to a pile. The idea being to clear the deck in as few moves as possible.

The player who makes the match does not get a second turn.

Create different card formations for the initial layout e.g. circular, kite shape, triangles, smiley faces, snakes etc. Use your imagination.
