Matching is an important classification skill for preschoolers. Matching helps us identify the same or similar objects based on their common properties. They also help to develop fine motor skills with drawing lines from one item to the next as well as the skill of holding a pencil. To help with this skill we have made these 5 free color & match printable worksheets. These worksheets are not only for preschoolers, as other young children starting out at school will also enjoy them.
These 5 free color & match printable worksheets have been made in black and white so after the items have been matched the child can color them in. We have simple matching printable worksheets and a couple of slightly more complicated ones on numbers and letters for slightly older children.
