If you’d like to build your preschooler’s math skills, make sure that you don’t forget about helping them learn how to sort and classify objects.
WHY PRESCHOOLERS SHOULD SORT AND CLASSIFY OBJECTS
Young children are naturally drawn to sorting and classifying because it brings a sense of control and order to their environment. Sorting is the ability to notice similarities and differences within a group of objects. This builds critical thinking skills and creates a foundation for problem solving skills.
Sorting and classifying activities are a great way to practice visual discrimination, too. This is a skill that is needed before learning to identify letters and numbers.
