I can scaffold this activity by adapting the language to suit various levels (big polkadots vs. little ones, hearts vs. three hearts, etc). We're also developing visual memory, turn-taking, and the concepts of 'same' and 'different.' I choose three or more pairs and lay them face down in rows on the table for a mitten memory match:
Players take turns flipping over and describing two mittens in search of a pair. If a set is made, the player keeps it. If they are not a match, both mittens are turned back over. When the cards are all gone, the player with the most pairs wins.
I printed a second copy to use for "Go Fish," which is great for working on asking questions, yes/no responding, identifying shapes and colors, using and understanding adjectives.
I'm sharing my mittens here. Let me know below if you grab them.
