### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

What’s included?
Activity cards that have 3 objects. 2 objects belong in the same category (i.e. animals, foods, toys) and one object does not. There are 25 “rows” with 3 objects in the row. The best way to utilize this activity is to cut each row separately and work with children to complete that one 3 object card.

Objective:
To teach children to sort and classify items.

Common Core Standard:
c. Patterns and Seriation
2. Sorts, orders, compares, and describes objects according characteristics or attribute(s) (seriation)
Benchmark a: Child places objects in increasing order of size where the increasing unit is constant
(e.g., unit blocks).

What is this activity?
This activity helps children compare and contrast objects to decipher which objects belong in a group and which ones do not. This also can build on vocabulary as children have to learn new objects to determine which one does not belong.

Sorting and classifying objects not only teaches children about attributes and relationships, but also promotes thinking logically and applying rules. Sorting and classifying exercises can also provide children with models for organizing things in the real world.

Why is this activity important for early math skills?
Sorting and classifying help children learn the fundamentals of math. Sorting and classifying objects not only teaches children about attributes and relationships, but also promotes thinking logically and applying rules. Sorting and classifying exercises can also provide children with models for organizing things in the real world. There’s more to preschool math than counting! Classification skills are building blocks for learning important math concepts.
