How to Use this Game
I like to start by laminating the vocabulary cards so they’ll be more durable to take on a road trip or use in your classroom centers.
Begin by having a discussion around the pictures. Explain and explore the meaning of the words- a vocabulary lesson in itself.
Once your children are comfortable with the meaning of each picture card, then each player pulls a card from the pile.
The repeated phrase for this game is, “We are going to the beach, and I am taking ____ with me.” Each child repeats this phrase with their item and all those who go after them.
The player who memorizes all the items from each person, in the correct order, is the winner!
Young kids/special needs children will find it helpful to see the cards while saying the sentence: “We are going to the beach and I am taking…he is taking…she is taking…”
To develop auditory memory skills, older kids can try to remember what the previous items were without the visual clues.
18 colorful pictures are included in this FREE printable. Laminate the cards and keep it in the car to pull out during travel times. Or keep it with your themed pictures in your class for a 10 minute filler game!
More ways to play!
- Traditional Memory- print two sets and play a traditional memory game where all cards are scattered face down and players take turns trying to find a match!
- Beach Vocabulary Guessing Game- one player picks up a card and explains the picture without saying the word while other players try to guess the beach themed picture they are describing. For example, “something that goes on your head to protect you from the sun.”
