Book Activities for A Pair of Pears and An Orange by Anna McGregor
This CBCA notable early childhood book for 2022 is a clever story about making adaptations to how we play so we can be inclusive rather than exclude individual players.
The team at Learn From Play have created 4 fun activities to allow children in their first couple of years of school to get the most out of this story. The activities are a set of cards to play memory, snap or Go Fish, a code breaker to solve a joke, a cut and paste activity sorting games by the number of players and a fun activity using facial expressions to convey emotions.
The games below are advertisement free and will open in a new window. They can be played by children online as many times as they like. The Match Up Memory Card Game will allow children to improve their memory while the Maze Game lets them develop strategy and problem solving skills while having fun. These games will also build children's attention, concentration and focus, visual recognition and short-term memory. Enjoy.
