Injini Matching Game
Fun colors, playful pictures and animations make this variation of the traditional card matching game a delight for kids to play. They are asked to find the card that matches the one displayed at the top of the screen and are treated to a big smile and pleasant chimes when they find the right card. After several successes, the matching becomes gradually more difficult, with more cards to choose from and more subtle differences between the choices.
Developmental Benefits: Identifying features of a given picture and finding an exact match facilitates logical reasoning and problem solving. Matching is a prerequisite for the development of mathematical concepts, such as numbers, counting, equivalence, and conservation of numbers (Montague-Smith, 1997). Matching games require visual discrimination, which is a skill that is to be developed upon entering kindergarten.
