Printable rocket and star color matching worksheets for preschool and kindergarten - space activity

 

For a simple game, there’s actually quite a lot of skills that can be learnt and practiced!

With this space themed color matching game your little ones can develop:

  • Color recognition practice – they will need to look closely at the colors, to ensure that they are drawing a line to the correct stars.
  • Pencil control – holding the pencil correctly to allow for a fluid range of movement
  • Hand dominance – developing and strengthening the skill of one of their hands
  • Hand and finger strength – the ability to be able to apply enough pressure to make marks on the page and hold the pencil firmly
  • Hand-eye coordination – to be able to understand what they are seeing and get their hands to go where they want them to go
  • Speech and language development – If you make sure you are getting them to say the colors when they are matching, it will help the color names become embedded as they associate the name of the color with what it looks like. You can also ask them questions – what else do you know that is green? Can you see anything else in the room which is pink? Where is it? This kind of questioning will keep them engaged and is great for language development as they describe what they are thinking and can see.
  • Patience and persistence – They’ll have to carry on even if they find it tricky at first.

Some Tips to get Some Extra Language Development In

I mentioned above that these kinds of activities can be great for language development as well as color recognition.

Ask them to think about the colors. What colors can you see? What else in the room is that color? Do you know any animals that have that color on them somewhere?

Ask them about the shapes. What shapes are the rockets made up of? What else do you know that is that shape?

Talking about shapes can be great to enhance their early math skills as well!

This kind of questioning will keep them engaged and make them think more about what they are doing. It’s also awesome for language development as you ask them to describe the rockets.

Enjoy!
