The need for understanding pattern and sorting is imperative for young students. Reading, writing and math are all subjects learned with patterns and sorting skills. Do you need a Pattern and Sorting Activity For Little Learners that is fun, engaging and purposeful?
Pattern and Sorting Activities
Even though patterns and sorting are no longer a kindergarten standard, primary educators know that this is the basis for critical thinking and problem solving skills. Recognizing patterns results in academic success.
Pattern recognition is the building block to understanding numbers and literacy. Patterns follow rules. Sorting gives little learners practice exploring with these rules. Having hands-on activities for your kindergartens to practice these rules is imperative.
Here is an activity I created to use with my anchor charts and pocket charts. This is a perfect activity for whole group, small group, partner or independent practice. Colors, 2D Shapes, Sizes, Letters & Numbers are all included in this engaging and purposeful activity.
- Coordinating pieces to create a sorting anchor chart
- I Can statement cards for each activity
- Organizational Label for each set of cards
- Header sorting cards w/ accompanying attribute specific cards
- Cards have identifying labels to match attribute
