Learning To Sort.

This week we are learning to sort and match. As we are learning about ‘ourselves’ we have sorted and matched our socks. Some of us have sorted according to our own criteria whilst others have sorted according to given criteria. We learned lots of new words such as ‘sort’, ‘set’, ‘pair’, ‘more than’ and ‘less than’. We compared sets and talked about how each of our sets were the same or different. Have a look in your sock drawer: How can you sort your socks?

Sorting ‘oa’ Words.

How many different coins can you think of?

What other objects could we sort into groups?
