Why Sort by color and shapes

Teaching children to sort objects by color and shape is an important foundational skill that helps to develop their cognitive abilities and prepare them for more advanced learning. Here are some reasons why sorting by color and shape is important:

1. 1. Development of visual discrimination skills: Sorting by color and shape helps children develop visual discrimination skills, which is the ability to distinguish between different colors and shapes. These skills are essential for reading, writing, and math, and are crucial for success in many other areas of learning.

2. 2. Early math skills: Sorting by color and shape helps children learn early math concepts such as categorization, classification, and patterning. These skills are fundamental for understanding more complex mathematical concepts later on.

3. 3. Language development: Sorting activities provide opportunities for children to use language to describe and compare objects based on their color and shape. This helps to build their vocabulary and strengthen their communication skills.

4. 4. Fine motor skills: Sorting by color and shape also helps to develop fine motor skills, as children manipulate and sort objects using their fingers and hands.

Example of sorting by color and shape

1. Start by presenting the two large color cards (one blue and one red) to the learners. Explain that they will be sorting the smaller cards based on their color and/or shape.

2. Next, present the 12 smaller cards (early learners start with simple color cards -6 blue cards and 6 red cards) to the learners. For a more advanced learner mix up the colored shapes -make sure the cards are different shapes, such as circles, squares, and triangles, to add an additional sorting dimension.

3. Ask the learners to sort the cards into two piles, one for each color. Encourage them to use the large color cards as a reference to help them sort the smaller cards.

Overall, sorting by color and shape is an effective way to introduce young children to key concepts and skills that will help them succeed in many areas of learning. As a teacher, incorporating these activities into your classroom can help promote student success and growth.

In this activity the learner will sort different SHAPES AND COLORS. The pages are clear of visual distractions which helps the learner focus on the task. This activity is easy to create - laminate all cards, cut out the individual sorting cards and velcro to the corresponding activity mat. You can hole punch the mats and put them in a binder for many years of teaching and learning.
