Online Math Games: Sorting

Everyday Math is our math curriculum we use in Kindergarten.  A different topic is introduced daily, slowly spiraling back over time to the same topics in a more complex way.  For more information, please click on the "Everyday Math" tab above.

Today in math, we focused on sorting. This is a fun concept for Kindergarteners to explore.

I broke students into two groups by a certain "rule" and they would guess my rule.  For example, I sorted students by sleeves/no sleeves, or boys and girls.  Students then broke out into small groups at tables to explore various manipulatives (buttons, chips, pattern blocks, etc.) and had to work with their team to sort the items by different attributes (shape, size, color, etc.)

Sorting is an easy thing to do at home with food, laundry, toys, and more.  Thank you for helping your child to find math all around them each day!
