A-HA Moment: UNO

It happened again! Just browsing through some of my games, I noticed an Uno game that I rarely pull out. I was just in some kindergarten classrooms where they are learning to sort by color, shape, etc. It hit me then...I can help foster these skills and practice speech skills at the same time!! 


Pull out a green, red, yellow, and blue piece of construction paper and lay on the floor (I took the picture before I did this). Separate out just the number cards and shuffle. Have your students take turns picking a card, matching the color and then sneak in some speech/language! Say the number of words on the card, answer a WH question, follow a direction (or two) before matching the card to the paper color. Score!! Recycled game fun! I'm surprised it hadn't come to me before!!

I love hearing about your A-HA moments! Had any good ones lately?!

  1. Oh my goodness, what a great idea! I use UNO a lot with my older kiddos, and now this is the perfect way to use it with the little ones. Thanks for sharing your "A-ha!" moment!
