This worksheet displays a grid of cupcakes, with the top row showing colored examples and the remaining rows featuring uncolored cupcakes. Each cupcake in the top row has a splash of color behind it, and the corresponding cupcake is colored to match that splash. The task for the students is to color the cupcakes in the rest of the grid following the pattern set by the examples in the first row. Students are to identify the color of the splash behind each cupcake and apply the same color to the cupcake that aligns with it in the column below.
The worksheet is crafted to develop pattern recognition and color matching skills in students. It teaches them to observe a set pattern and replicate it consistently across different items—in this case, the cupcakes. This activity also enhances their understanding of color identification by associating splashes of color with the corresponding color of the cupcake. Moreover, it nurtures the students’ fine motor skills as they carefully color within the lines of the cupcakes, aiming for neatness and accuracy.
