Sorting is a foundational math skill for preschoolers. Sorting activities help children develop the understanding that things are alike and different and can be organized into groups. Practicing sorting at an early age helps lay the foundation for numerical concepts and grouping numbers and sets when they are older.
Look around the house and provide your children with a variety of things to sort:
Rocks, jellybeans, different cereals, socks, buttons, small animal toys, Legos, marbles, stuffed animals, dried pasta – Get creative!
