Here is a collection of seven decimal sorts. I use these to assess student understanding of decimal concepts. The first sort can be utilized to see if students comprehend the place value names and standard/word form of decimals. The other six should be used as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division practice with decimals.
I used these in my classroom as morning work usually, and they would continue to work on these during math. This is a great thing to do while you are working with small groups. I would have my students keep a small sandwich bag in their desk. That way, if they did not finish a sort, they would put the remaining pieces in there to work on later. Students cut out the rectangles and then solve the math equations to find the answer. They sort based on the answer, gluing the equation under its respective answer. I always made my students attach their work to their finished sort, so I can see their thought process (and to ensure they're not cheating).
Here is a list of the sorts:
1. Place Value Sort
2. Adding and Subtracting Decimals (only tenths)
3. Adding and Subtracting Decimals (tenths and hundredths)
4. Adding and Subtracting Decimals (tenths, hundredths, and thousandths)
5. Multiplying and Dividing Decimals (tenths and hundredths, decimals ONLY in dividend and quotient)
6. Multiplying and Dividing Decimals (tenths and hundredths, decimals in dividend, divisor, and quotient)
7. Multiplying and Dividing Decimals (tenths, hundredths, and thousandths: decimals in dividend, divisor, and quotient)
