Who Are The People In Your Family?

We are working on speech and vocabulary so I made a family matching game for Adeline.  Using Picasa I was able to make this grid and cards.  First we pointed to each person, talking about "where is ______?  Adeline was really excited seeing us in this game.  After pointing we matched each picture.

When we are finished with this activity I think I will put the pictures in a book with the proper label.


  1. What a cute idea! I want to make Miss K a book with the people in her family ... "This is my mom ... This is my dad" type of book that even our 5 year old could read to her. I love the matching component and could see making the book with the velcro matches much like you did with the board books (which I also plan to do ... I even bought the same board books for Miss K for Christmas to make into matching books).

  2. What a sweet activity! Thanks so much for linking up with Montessori Monday. I featured your post at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page and pinned your post to my Kid's Family Tree Activities Pinterest board at

  3. I love the idea of people matching. We have an album i made when Goblin was very small which has a page for each family member, but I like teh idea of doing activities as well.

  4. NIce idea, we did a similar one for Luna (our baby with down sindrome), using the See & Learn programme (, in the cards they're useing there is the space to add mom and dad, and the activities are of pointing and matching and (eventually) saying or signing the name...
    I've just found your blog, very inspyring...I'll come back!
