Self-check games where children get immediate feedback are a great way to reinforce skills. We want children to practice, but we also want to make sure the correct information is getting stored in the brain.

What? construction paper, markers, scissors

Why? words and pictures, upper and lowercase letters, antonyms, math facts and answers, etc.

When? Learning center, independent practice, take home game

How? Cut puppies out of construction paper. Bend down the ear. Write one thing on the puppy’s body and write the answer under the ear.

*These puppies are great for second languages.

Hint! Old workbooks are good for making phonics and math games where you need pictures of different objects and amounts.

Here's a similar self-check game you can make with sharks.
