As a preschool, pre-k and kindergarten teacher, it’s so important to have the right tools for teaching beginning math concepts. Sorting by attributes is a huge skill in the early years of math. Hands on activities and books are great supplemental items to have in your classroom. Here are some of my favorite sorting by attributes books and games for your classroom!
