Sorting Manipulatives

The children spent time today sorting little manipulatives shaped like presents. The presents were a variety of sizes and colours. During circle time we discussed the different characteristics of the manipulatives and how we could sort them. We called this our 'sorting rule'.

First we talked about what was the same and different about the objects.

The children decided to sort by size and placed the small, medium, and large presents together in the appropriate groups.

Next we sorted the objects by colour.

During free choice time the children had a chance to continue practice sorting the manipulatives.

The children got creative!

Some Ontario Curriculum these activities fulfilled includes:

DM5.1 sort, classify, and compare objects
and describe the attributes used
