I posted about Zoya learning her colors HERE AND HERE. Zoya had a really hard time learning to match two similar items until just recently. You can see her matching the color card to the one that looks the same. It seems like a simple skill but it's not so easy to teach and it wasn't so easy for Zoya to learn...but she's got it down now :) She is able to do the same with her numbers and shapes (I havent posted about shapes yet but she has recently learned the 8 shapes in the preschool prep series). You can see her in the beginning of the video smiling with her cheesy face because she thought I was taking a picture with my phone..she didn't realize I was trying to take a video.
We recently started working on sorting colors into the correct color group. I've been using little color counters and having her put them on the correct color character on the placemat. Next I will use different colored placemats or bowls and have her try to sort colors that way without using the color characters.
