This sorting game is a fantastic way to review EMA strategies for Senior Infant Classes:
- classify objects on the basis of one attribute, such as colour, shape, texture or size
It’s a great lesson opener or transition activity. Really simple, clear and child friendly. I like the fact that you can cover a huge variety of classifications and comparisons in one game. It covers: size, number, letters vs numbers, colours, shapes, spots vs stripes… I also like the way that it integrates letter sorting. Sneaky and clever at the same time!
It also covers “half” and “whole’ which are part of the 1st class maths curriculum:
- establish and identify half of sets to 20
“Sort” does cover “odd” and “even” numbers but you can easily skip ahead if not applicable to your class grade.
If you are teaching Junior Infants or the parent of a Junior Infant child then I would encourage you to bookmark it. This sorting game would be fantastic for an end of year review/assessment.
