Fruit and Vegetable Matching Cards

This set is great for children who are not yet reading.  They can help to build vocabulary and awareness of the child's world.

This file includes A LOT of different fruits and vegetables.  54 in all.  This means that you can have some choices about which fruits and vegetables are available for the child to use at a given time.  This also means that this work is interesting for a longer time.

I would limit the number of available cards to about 15-20 pairs.

In order to make this work:

  • Print two copies of each page
  • Cut out the matching cards
  • You could color code the back each set for self correcting if desired
  • Laminate the matching cards
  • Place in a small basket
  • Give a short naming lesson for the cards that will be available first
  • Give a short naming lesson when cards are changed

  1. You are so welcome! I am glad to find that others find them helpful.

  2. Hi, Is there a way you could upload them into a couple files rather than one large file, please? Google Docs says the file is too large to scan so there is no way I can open it when it is so large. It looks like these cards are going to be so useful - thanks for your efforts!

  3. Thank you so much for this work!
