L has pretty much outgrown most picture matching works, so I decided to create a more complex set to provide a bit of a challenge. I remembered that I had made a set of snowflake matching cards back when I was teaching, so I decided to recreate it for L.
I found 12 distinct magnified photographs of snowflakes and printed them out in pairs. I put one set of snowflakes on a dark blue backing and one on a light blue backing, and put them in two separate containers on a tray. In my first presentation, I only laid out 8 of the dark blue snowflake cards, then asked her to match them with the correct light blue snowflake cards. L studied each card intently before matching it until she had quickly matched each, so I put out the last four cards.
This matching work helps develop visual discrimination skills and allows for the discussion of tiny details and differences in the snowflakes. It’s a great picture matching work for a toddler or preschooler who has already mastered simpler versions — and I’d love to share it with you!
