School Bus Color Sorting

This school bus color sorting activity is great fun for toddlers and preschoolers when it is "Back to School" time. Whether you do "tot school" at home or sending your preschooler to school for the first time, they can start to identify with other children on a school bus, off to go learning too!


Pin Me!
FREE printable Back to School themed color sorting and matching activity for toddlers, featuring kids getting on different colored school buses. Fun for the beginning of school or for a transportation theme. Toddlers and preschoolers will love this activity!

Prepping:
Simply print, laminate and cut the free set of school bus colors printables. 


PS. There are only 2 kids per color, but you can print extra pages if you want to fill the bus. Ready to learn!

How to use the School Bus Color printables:

Identify the color on the bus and look for the children with the corresponding color clothes. Place them on the bus. Preschoolers can also "read" the color word in the sentence - incidental reading at its best! Younger children might need assistance the first time they play, but it can become an independent learning activity for a class center. With young children you might want to start with only two colors at a time and work your way up to mixing all of the colors as they progress.

Not only does a child practice visual discrimination by sorting the colors and color identification (and "reading"), fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination are developing when picking up the small pictures and placing it just right. Life skills develop when a child realizes that each student has a certain bus he or she must take to get home. All of these important skills are being developed through one simple but fun activity!

Have fun learning about colors with our friends and their school bus colors!
