Math is a part of your toddler’s schooling, even at their young age! Matching and sorting are two foundational math skills that your toddlers are learning to utilize just by observing the world around them. We have been practicing these math skills in school all year, and we wanted to show you different ways that we teach these skills in our classroom.
One tool we use with our toddlers is a color mat! We use different colored objects for them to sort onto the corresponding color on the mat. Recently, we used colored letters to sort onto the color mat–sneaking in letter sounds whenever we could
Going along with our January theme of “winter”, for matching skills practice, we took turns matching patterns on mittens in one of our small groups!
Now, maybe they’ll be able to help you find the match to your mismatched gloves/mittens at home! 😉
