I just had to find another way to use my fun clip art from Pink Pueblo! So I created a set of 12 which one is different worksheets for preschool and kindergarten. The best part is that they are in four levels of difficulty. By giving them different pages of the pack, I was able to challenge my Two, Four, and Six.
Level One: On the first three pages, each line contains identical images with one image that is completely different.
Level Two: The images are the same, but one has been altered slightly. It could be upside down, facing a different direction, or a different size than the other pictures.
My two-year-old (almost three) loved doing levels 1 and 2. I gave him an “x” stamp to stamp out the picture that did not belong in each row. Another idea is to use Do a Dot markers. You can also laminate the pages and use small magnets to cover the picture that doesn’t fit. That will give you lots of use out of these pages, especially if you are using them at a learning center in a classroom.
Level Three: These are more challenging. Your child will need to think about what kind of thing each item represents. Are they all food, except for one? Are they all animals, except for one? Or, in the above example, are they all things that can take you places, except for one?
My four-year-old enjoyed levels 2, 3, and some of level 4, before he’d had enough sitting.
Level Four: This one requires a lot more thinking. At first glance, it might look like the pictures belong together. In the above example, the cow gets crossed out because it is the only farm animal.
Level 4 was a good challenge for my six-year-old, who is just finishing kindergarten.

You can print in black and white – the colors are pretty, but not important :).
