This product was originally designed as a request from an educator who wanted to take sorting to the next level for older students.
It’s the goal that students will take seemingly random pictures and use their critical thinking skills to sort the pictures into categories, while being able to justify and explain their thinking.
I've included just some of the ways you can sort the pictures, but as I learned first hand while using this in my own class, the children come up with much more creative ways !
Enclosed you will find:
12 pages with 144 pictures for sorting. I would suggest laminating them for durability.
6 Sorting Mats. You can use one mat per sort or have students stack their piles as seen in the preview
5 Various Recording sheets (choose what
works best for you and your kids).
2 pages Sorting Labels. Feel free to laminate them, cut them out, and have the kids (or teacher) write on the label with wipe off markers for how they sorted or how you want them to sort.
Your feedback is greatly appreciated!
