Sorting skills for math

This week’s activities will focus on math – specifically sorting. Sorting helps your child become aware of the differences and likenesses of objects. These (seemingly simple, but super important) activities help to build a strong math foundation for later, more complex mathematical thinking. Many daily activities provide practice with sorting such as putting away silverware, matching socks, cleaning up and putting away toys and sorting groceries into pantry/freezer/refrigerator piles.
Young children begin to learn how to sort by size and color first. Later, as your child learns more about shapes and their attributes, your child will be able to work on sorting by shape.
