How to Sort Objects In a Group? (NB) Sorting is one of the basic concepts that help children in learning numbers. Sorting can be carried out with or without the use of numbers. They can utilize different objects to practice sorting such as identifying objects and putting them in distinct groups. Children need to fully understand the concept of sorting before they start working on numbers because it is essential to recognize what to count before actually being to count. Sorting includes identifying and finding items that are alike and putting them in a group by their particular attribute. To help you get started on this fundamental pre-number concept, we have listed the different ways: 1. Lay out items in different colors and let youngsters carefully examine them. Once the curious minds have observed and examined the items, encourage them to identify the items according to their colors. You can ask them to stack the objects rather than laying them out in groups. This will prompt observation and enhances color differentiation 2. Spread out items of varying sizes on the surface and mix them. Give some time for observation and ask children to categorize them in groups of similar sizes. You can also help children identify different patterns through. This will encourage sorting and pattern recognition 3. You can also use number cards for sorting purposes. Lay the number cards face down and prompt children to arrange them in the correct number order. This awesome selection of worksheets and lessons shows you how to pick out groups made up of somewhere between six and ten objects.
