Match Dominoes

A fun game to help expand your mentee’s vocabulary!

Supplies Needed:  Popsicle sticks, marker


Step 1:  Make a list of rhyming words (for example, cat-hat-bat; mail-pail-whale). The more sets of rhyming words you create, the more challenging the game will be.

Step 2:  Write a word on each end of the stick.

Step 3:  Start matching! Each player starts by drawing 3-5 sticks for their hand. You can only lay down a stick end that rhymes with one in play that hasn’t previously been matched. If you don’t have any matches, draw from the pile until you pull a stick you can play. Whoever runs out of sticks first, wins!

To add to the fun, create new rhyming words and start over!
