Matching and sorting activities help develop reasoning and problem solving skills. They strengthen fine motor skills and hand eye coordination.
Matching and sorting, as with all other math activities, are best learned when they are part of a child’s everyday life. Children need to see math being used in the real world.
Color matching allows a child to demonstrate their knowledge. Activities like this can also be lessons in vocabulary, naming colors as they sort gives a child the chance to tell you what they know.
Color matching can help a child find order in the world around them and to understand categories, which also helps them to understand their place in the world.
