Matching and sorting are important skills that children need to master at early ages. Matching is the identification of the same or similar objects according to their common properties. Sorting is to separate objects into specific orders according to their particular features. Matching and sorting skills lay the foundation for mathematical learning. Children should master certain skills such as matching and sorting by shapes, sizes, and colors.
This worksheet provides an exercise for kids to identify several basic shapes and to compare their sizes. It may attract kids around three years old. The worksheet contains five groups of basic shapes with increasing or decreasing sizes, including squares, circles, stars, hearts, and triangles.
Parents could cut out the shapes, mix them, and ask kids to fill the cut-out shapes into their original positions. Or you may ask kids to put the shapes into the corresponding outlines on the second page of the worksheet. This exercise could educate kids to identify differences in shapes and dimensions. Such activity is also a great way to train kids to concentrate, develop their hand-eye coordination, and prepares their little hands for more complex tasks of writing and drawing.
