Learning to sort by several attributes such as size and color is a skill that preschoolers need to acquire. Some may come by this skill naturally while others simply needed to be guided. Caleb has shown some interest in putting things where they belong and matching a few items such as red counting bears in a red cup. The #TeachECE team has created a wide range of activities for the My Neighbourhood preschool theme and today I will share our preschool math color sorting activity.
