Christmas Tree SIZE SORTING GAME
Our printable Christmas tree sorting game perfect for incorporating the holidays into big and small sorting activities.
If using this in a classroom setting, I recommend using a laminator machine and laminating the mats and tokens before cutting them out.
This printable activity includes three mats and each one is labeled with a size: Large, Medium, Small.
There are also six sets of cute Christmas Trees with faces. Each set includes a big, medium, and small tree token. Cut these out ahead of time for a very low prep activity.
Mix up the Christmas tree tokens and ask your child to sort them by size onto the correct mat.
You can easily adjust the difficulty of this activity for toddlers and younger kids as needed. For example, you can lay out just the Large and Small mats and tokens to start with and then later add in Medium too.
IS SORTING A MATH SKILL?
Sorting may seem like a simple activity, but it is an important early math skill for preschool and kindergarten children to work on.
Hands on sorting activities allow them to learn how to recognize similar objects and practice grouping them together.
This provides a foundation for building on math skills, such as grouping number sets, when they are older.
Developing a child’s sorting skill will help them recognize patterns and easily make matches. This becomes important for solving more complex math equations later.
For this activity, they need to look at the different tree tokens, compare them, and categorize them as large, medium, or small.
