Color sorting made easy! These free printable color sorting mats are the perfect resource for helping preschoolers learn their colors!
Do you have a child just learning their colors? Does your little one mix up blue and purple or yellow and orange?
Add this color sorting printable activity to your free preschool printables, and you’ve got everything you need to set up a fun independent activity for preschoolers.
Free Printable Color Sorting Mats
This color sorting printable features eleven colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, black, brown, white, gray, and pink.
Each card features a child wearing the color and the color word. There are 66 color cards featuring six items for each of the eleven colors featured.
SETTING UP THE ACTIVITY
Print out each color sorting mat and card. I suggest printing on cardstock for stability. Then, I would laminate them for durability.
Cut each of the sorting mats out so that it is all one large card. Cut the cards apart so that you end up with 66 individual cards.
If you’d like this to be a transportable activity (perfect for restaurants or church), add velcro dots to the empty squares on the sorting mats and the backside of each color card.
The activity itself is pretty straightforward. Your child will match each color card to its corresponding color sorting mat.
There are a variety of ways to differentiate the activity, though.
For young preschoolers, start with one color at a time. Talk about the color. Show your child the color sorting mat, and show them the color word. This is just to begin familiarizing your preschooler with color words not for them to learn to read or spell it.
Talk about things that are the same color as the one you’re discussing. They may already be able to identify a few items from their surroundings that are the same as the featured color.
After you’ve discussed what they know, share the color cards with them (just the ones for the featured color to start). Have your child name each item as she adds it to the mat. “An apple is red. A bow is red.”
Once your child is familiar with those items, introduce the color cards for a second color. Mix them up, and let your choose which ones go on the color sorting mat you’re working with.
As your little ones become familiar with the color cards and can confidently choose the correct cards from a set of two, introduce two or three color sorting mats at a time with their color cards.
Mix them up and let your child sort them accordingly. For an added challenge, choose three mats and four sets of color cards so that not every card has a mat.
For an added challenge, choose three mats and four sets of color cards so that not every card has a mat.
When your child is proficiently sorting multiple cards/mats at once, add the entire set to a center or quiet time box for your child to use independently.

Community helper sorting mats
Looking for a fun learning center that will help your students think about community workers? Try these free sorting mats!

Recently I released a community helpers theme pack. Included in that pack is a giant set of community helper sorting mats. Today I’m sharing a free sample!
Your download comes with four sorting mats and six pictures for each mat.
How to assemble
1. Print the mats and cards.
2. Laminate. (This is our favorite home laminator!)
3. Cut apart the cards.
4. If desired, attach clear Velcro dots to the mats and cards. Attach the cards to each mat for storage.
5. To play, take out two or more mats. Remove the cards and mix them up. Have your child name the pictures and determine where the pictures belong.
My Three has learned a lot about community helpers in the last month, as we’ve spent many hours reading over a hundred books about community helpers! All that reading has really helped him expand his vocabulary.
These mats provided an opportunity to use that knowledge.
He could identify most, but not all, of the pictures by himself.
Doing these sorting mats together is such a great activity for him! He has to identify the pictures, think about how the objects are used, and determine which community helpers would use them.
There was lots of critical thinking going on!
Your download comes with four mats: firefighter, police officer, baker, and mail carrier. My Community Helpers theme pack comes with a total of 24 mats and card sets! I pulled out some from the theme pack, as he kept requesting more of them.
I chose mats that were easy to contrast: farmer and nurse, for example.
Hairdresser and grocer was another easy contrast.
We finished with artist and garbage collector.
These sorting mats are wonderful for at-home learning or for a center activity in a preschool classroom. Download the sample set below. If you’re doing a full community helpers theme, I recommend buying the full pack! These sorting mats are just one piece of a GIANT set of resources for preschool and kindergarten. You can learn more about the pack here.
Sharing is caring!

And in different places. About three months ago I went for a gastroscopy and while I was waiting in line, I offered to train my pharynx. We went to the toilet, locked ourselves in the office and my "camera" went down my mother's throat.
Breasts and a juicy ass. I have a short, straight haircut that successfully emphasizes the almond shape of the eyes and naturally plump, pink lips. I knew perfectly well what effect I have on men, but I am very selective in my partners and I don't let anyone near me.

She sucked it clean, and only then, with a loud "chpok", released it outside. And the previous day did not foreshadow anything like that. The only thing he foreshadowed was a booze on the occasion that my immediate superior had safely exchanged fifty dollars. Honestly lived his fifty years and intended to celebrate this case with his characteristic scale, that is, get drunk to smithereens.
And the situation was favorable - Friday, and the object is practically commissioned, it remains only to take out the garbage.

Know a lot about you. At stake is exactly one million euros and one of the families will take it away today. After the cards are dealt, before you look at them, I will write down the task on the card, and the one who loses will. Complete it.
