Farming is a very efficient way of growing the sort of food that people want to eat. Your little ones spent one week learning all about the different crops that farmers yield every year during the fall season. One day of this week was dedicated to the sorting of fruits and vegetables.
To distinguish the difference between these two groups of foods, your little one participated in a pre-math activity. Using pictures, stickers, and play food, we sorted fruits and vegetables into two piles.
Sorting and classifying objects help children begin to notice how items are alike and different, and creates an awareness that is vital for math learning.
Learning to distinguish between things feels like a major accomplishment for preschool children, and using a variety of concrete materials made the activity that much more fun!
