A note about early #Mathematics from the #Toddler room... #Children have a natural desire to make sense of their world, to create #order in a place that seems largely out of their control. For that reason, #sorting activities often attract children. Many children will start sorting objects without even being taught. Young children will put their blocks or toys in piles based on color or some other category. This #skill reinforces the idea that children can #organize their world using senses while also working on visual discrimination.
So why is all of this so #important ?
Sorting is a beginning math skill. It may seem that a big chunk of #early math is about learning #numbers and #quantity , but there's much more to it. By sorting, children #understand that things are alike and different. As well, they can belong to (and be organized by) certain groups. Practicing the skill of sorting at an early age is important for numerical concepts, grouping numbers and ordering sets as the children grow. This type of #thinking starts them on the path of applying logical thinking to objects, mathematical concepts and every day life in general.
