Ready to start sorting with your students? Here's an easy way to get them started!
Designed for 3-5 year old children, this simple sorting task asks students to sort by big/little using common shapes. The file folder even has boxes in the appropriate sizes to help guide learning. I would glue the full sheets into a file folder and have a simple file folder game to start introducing the concept of sorting (the skill I usually introduce after we have mastered matching). This set includes big and little circles, trianges, and squares. You could set up your file folder games in several ways: sort big triangles and big circles, sort big and little squares, etc.
These matching tasks are perfect for use with many of my adapted books. My adapted books are created for use in pre-K, preschool, early childhood special education and child care classrooms. Want more adapted books in other themes? To see my inventory of adapted books, click here
