Lesson Plan 3
Montessori sorting activities
For today’s game let your child find similarities and differences between objects.
Using the 4 adjectives used in the book to describe the giraffe, the bull and the lion:
Play a sorting game!
Using baskets or pillows designate an area for tall objects, one for strong ones etc.
See where the conversation takes you and build your child’s sorting skills.
For a younger child to simplify the game use only 2 groups.
Sorting/matching/grading are all part of the Montessori Sensorial curriculum and prepare the child for later numeracy problem solving.
Ultimately have fun and enjoy discovering together.
