My Name's Peter!


a card game for kids learning English


game instructions

This is a card game for two or three to learn and practise introducing yourself and asking someone's name in English.


preparation

Print out a peter card and matching cards. If you want, you can stick the printout onto the heavy paper. Laminate for future use.
Cut out the individual cards, fold them and glue. Learn more how to prepare our double-sided cards (pdf).


how to play

Kids try to collect pairs of matching cards. A pair consists of a picture with its name and a card with the text, for example, My name is Barbara.

  • Shuffle the cards and deal them.
  • Players check if they have any pairs, and put the pairs they have found aside. Then one player chooses one card from his or her partner's set. If the chosen card matches any of his or her cards, he or she puts the pair aside.
  • Now it is another player's turn to play. The looser is the one who's left with the peter! card.
