An important skill for any preschooler to master is how to sort or categorize items. In our classroom, you will see students sorting items by color, by size, or by type of item. This is an easy skill to practice while at home. Ask your preschooler to help you to sort the laundry. Or go on a walk and put leaves into different categories. You could sort leaves by color or by size. You could sort them by texture or what type of plant the leaves came from (tree or flower).
