Introduction to Sorting
Sorting is such a useful skill for children to learn! They can sort so many different objects and even words,
and by so doing, can find patterns and rules in the world around them. This is the lesson plan I always use to
introduce my students to sorting. By the end of it, your students will be sorting masters!
This packet includes two lesson plans, ideas for items children can sort, and lists of words for children to sort.
Materials you will need:
Fancy/not fancy items (t-shirt, brown shoes vs. high heels, anything sparkly…)
A bag of assorted buttons
Odds and ends for children to sort (bouncy balls, pencils, rocks, leaves, etc.)
