How to Use the Christmas Same or Different Worksheets with Early Learners
There are several ways you can use these visual discrimination activities with your students.
Of course, you can print the worksheets, hand them out, and call it a day.
When your learners are antsy or you’re running short on time, this is definitely a good idea!
But if you have a little time to prep, you can also let them color in the blackline versions and create their own activity.
They can use the same colors to color their ornaments the same and different colors to color the different one on each row.
You could also print the answer key and cut the sections into strips. Place them on a ring for self-checking at math centers!
Or laminate them and let students use them with dry erase markers. That way, you can print and prep once and use them again and again.
These are perfect take-home activities for students to have over winter break too.
