Sorting and Classifying Activities for Kindergarten
We invite you to come and check out our collection of sorting and classifying activities for kindergarten.
Young children can be quite active – not only physically, but mentally; they keep their minds busy by trying to establish order in the things they see around them. As they grow, they’ll learn to note various properties about the objects they perceive in the world, and organize these objects into different categories.
Your little learners’ ability to classify items that share specific properties – such as size, color, and shape – are a part of their developing mathematical mind. It indicates their capacity to both observe the characteristics of objects, and process them into organized sets.
As these are fundamental math skills, they can benefit a lot from getting enough practice at an early age. Help them train their observational and organizational thinking with these fun sorting and classifying activities for kindergarten. These classification worksheets are great for kindergarteners, although they can be suitable exercises for pre-schoolers and early elementary school pupils as well.
We believe that worksheets should be simple and intuitive to work with. To that end, our sheets use only an austere but visually appealing design to bring the learner’s attention to the practice exercises on the page. Our illustrations and symbols are clear and well-detailed to help provide a hassle-free learning activity.
Children will be able to flex their analytical and logical muscle through our worksheets. This page contains a range of exercises to test out how your learners perceive and process various symbols and images.
In our Different Shapes practice worksheet, for instance, we will present children with multiple sets of different pictures and symbols. Each set contains a group of shapes that largely embody the exact same set of characteristics; however, one of the shapes will possess a different property from the rest. It is up to the children to discover which shape is dissimilar and point out its unique property.
In another worksheet – labelled “Same but Different Object Size” – the images in each set are identical. However, one instance will be slightly larger than the rest of the images.
Yet another type of worksheet goes a different direction. In the sheet simply entitled “Same” students will be presented with a specimen image in the left column. They must then find the same image among a variety of different symbols in the right column. Sometimes, knowing which things are alike requires viewing things from a different perspective; a few of the problems will have the specimen rotated in the right column to challenge the learner’s brain a bit more.
Preparing sorting and classifying activities for kindergarten can be a taxing and tiring ordeal. We hope you’ll enjoy using our classification worksheets for your next study or teaching session.
