Simple Montessori Matching Activity for Your Child
Object to card matching is a fun way to develop hand-eye coordination, language, concentration, visual discrimination and cognitive development.
Aside from using language to introduce new items to your child, try a fun matching game with a set of cards and toys that replicate these items. Your child can start abstracting and making sense that these object can also be represented in two-dimensional picture.
By matching cards to real life object or toys, your child can now bridge the gap between their newly-discovered items and the proper vocabulary used to name them. This activity will familiarise your child with the words needed to describe these objects. Watch their language skills improve during the process!
