What You'll Need

  • Tray
  • Small Container
  • MBM Works Montessori Worksheet- Color and Shape Matching

How to Do It

To prepare cut out each shape on the second sheet. Place the worksheet on the tray and the matching shapes in the small container. Invite the child to the mat or shelf and tell them today we are going to match colors and shapes. First, show the child the worksheet in the tray, point to each shape and color saying what they are. Next, slowly and precisely match each color and shape to the worksheet, again saying the name of each color as you place it on the worksheet. Finally show them how to restore the work and return it to the shelf. Tell them where the work will be located inviting them to explore with whenever they want.

Helpful Tips

This work helps to improve color recognition and concentration. This work can be challenging for the child as the shape cards may slide, optionally you could add Velcro to the worksheet to help secure. To make this work last longer we recommend laminating.
