Ready, Set, Sort!

This page is for our Kindergarten class to learn how to identify the categories that items should be sorted in! This lesson is derived from this ELA Common Core Standard: CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.K.5.A- Sort common objects into categories (e.g., shapes, foods) to gain a sense of the concepts the categories represent.

Learning Objective: Students will create a flip-book as a table group that puts food into categories with less than two mistakes per page.

Step One: Watch this video on sorting apples! Click play!

Step Two: Examine the picture below! Discuss with your table what categories you can put this food into!
