Sorting Sizes and Math

Visual perception of small and large objects is the first step in math readiness.
Sorting objects from smallest to largest is a great way to introduce the first steps of math. Use different sized balls or other items to put in order of size. When you introduce this use as few words as possible. Next let your child have a turn. You can teach vocabulary after your child has mastered this activity.

Use the printouts from Sorting from Smallest to Largest for the next step in your child’s mathematical development.

Family Moon Watching Activity

It’s always a great time to observe the moon. It is a perfect time to enjoy the evening with your family and chart the moon’s changing phases on your own lunar calendar.   Check out the free moon and calendar printouts at montessorimom.com. I am having a great time making my own lunar calendar!
