This is a little mat session activity that I've created based on the story book 'The Little Engine That Could'. The sorting activity can be used as a integrated numeracy activity after reading the story to the children during a shared reading session. It has two parts, once on a board, and next with the children able experience it themselves, just to really get them to understand the concept of sorting.
First part: the children can sort the toys by colour into the same coloured train carriages (print out in A3 and stick to a wall/board).
Second part: construct a make believe train and use different coloured chairs (can be grouped by colour or can be random!). Each child will hold a ticket and you (train conductor) can only allow children with the right coloured tickets to come aboard!
