Robby Rabbit’s Matching Pairs
Help Robby Rabbit match up the Animals Letters in the Petting Zoo. There are six different places in the Petting Zoo: the Central Barnyard, the Bird House, the Horse Stable, the Pen, the Pond and the Reptile Exhibit. In each Zoo area, there are many games inside the games, giving children plenty of opportunities for children to play and learn.
In each area, there is a rectangular sign that contains the Animal Pictures, Merged Animal Letters and plain letters to match. You will also find matching Animal Pictures, Merged Animal Letters and plain letters scattered around the yards. Tell the child that as she or he finds one of them, she or he is to click on it and drag it to its match on the sign. The sign will turn a different color, showing that the child is correct. If it doesn’t, try another match. (The letter will snap back in position if incorrect.)
The child will know that there are still matches to make because the sign will not all be one color.
Zoophonia and Zeke Zebra will encourage your children after four correct matches. Zoophonia also Signals and sounds the letter after every match. Encourage your children to Signal and sound with her for alphabetic reinforcement.
If your child cannot find the other letters, remind them to click on Zoophonia. She’ll look around the barnyard and tell the child how many to locate. She’ll give a hint by Signaling and sounding the missing letter (Picture, Merged or plain).
When the game is over and the child has been successful, Robby Rabbit hops in and does something funny. Zeke appears and suggests the child go to another part of the barnyard for more fun!
To exit, click on the large letter ‘r’ in each scene to return to the main barnyard where all the Robby Rabbit Matching Pairs games can be found. Click on the Zoo Map to access the other games in the Zoo.
