Montessori Object Match with Cards- Miniature Objects with Matching Cards - 2 Part Cards. Montessori learning toy, language materials
This Montessori learning activity focuses on matching miniature common objects to their matching realistic photo cards. Children lay out the cards and place the miniature object on the matching picture. This activity is small enough to take with you and can be extended into pretend play with the mini objects.
Matching Skill - Visual Discrimination:
This activity focuses on more advanced preschool matching. The objects are not an exact copy of the photo so children need to carefully observe details to match correctly. Children problem solve by looking at distinctive attributes that they can see on both the object and the photo. They may begin by looking at the shape or function of the object in order to match them correctly. They might ask themselves "which objects are tall and skinny?" or "which objects have holes?" Recognizing these little details helps a child grow their category knowledge and learn new vocabulary!
