My students love the story "Brown Bear Brown Bear, What Do You See?" It is a great story to read at the beginning of the year!
We use this sorting mat to sort by color! (Connecting cubes, beads, letters, anything that matches the colors!)
Please note: There are 2 different mats! A color mat and a blackline! Each mat will PRINT ON 2 PAGES (so they will have enough room to sort!) You will need to tape/glue/ attach the 2 pages together to have a full mat.
I printed the mats, cut off the edge of one and glued them together, then mounted it on cardstock/construction paper!
