What is it about match cards that children love so much? My girls just adore them, which is why you see them so often here at Mama’s Learning Corner!

Off and on throughout this school year, the kids and I have listened and read The Story of the Orchestra.
My daughter plays violin, so we’ve set out to learn all we can about how and orchestra operates and which instruments are involved.
It’s been a fun adventure!
Match Cards: Orchestra!
Sadly, I didn’t think to make these 3-part Orchestra cards until this past week. I wish I had them for us to use the whole school year while we learned about the various part of the orchestra.
Better late than never!
And if learning at your house is anything like mine, you know that the school year never really ends and learning goes on all of the time.
So I’m certain my kiddos will have plenty of opportunity to use these cards in the weeks to come!
In this set of printable match cards, you’ll find a set of pictures with words in which the words can be cut off for matching.
There is also a set of picture cards where the words stay attached.
There are many ways that your children can use these cards. Here are just a few suggestions:
→ For younger learners, use as a matching game. Once you print the whole set, you can match conductor to conductor, tuba to tuba, and so on.
→ Match the name of the instrument to the picture.
→ Sort the cards by section (strings, brass, etc.)
→ If you own The Story of the Orchestra, have your child match the instrument to the picture on the page.
→ Listen to some classical music and see if your child can discern which instrument(s) is playing and have him choose the correct card.
What other ideas can you think of?
♥ Note that these cards are available for personal or classroom use. Enjoy!
