AT HOME
Where does each thing belong? Connect each object to the correct room

Note: Sorting is an important part of mathematics

MAKING PAIRS
Draw a line to connect the objects that go together to make pairs

Note: This activity gives practice with sorting and matching.

PEOPLE AT WORK
Connect each person to the object that he or she uses. Can you name these people?

Note: Working out which things belong together is an important mathematical skill.

ODD ONE OUT


Put an x over the different one in each row

Note: This activity helps children concentrate when looking for something that is not quite right.

WHATS MISSING?
Look carefully at the picture. Five things are missing. Can you draw in the missing parts?

Note: Finding out what is missing is an early foundation skill for mathematics.

FITTING SHAPES
Connect each shape to its shadow

Connect each shape to where it fits

Note: Recognizing simple shapes is an important part of mathematics


MATCHING PAIRS
Connect each lid to the correct box. Colour the box lids

Note: This activity helps children recognize the properties of simple shapes and patterns.

10
