Why is sorting important for preschoolers and kindergartners to do?

By sorting the pumpkins and grouping them into different size categories (big, medium, small) they are using and strengthening their observation, logic, and reasoning skills.

They need to look at the different pumpkin tokens, compare them, and categorize them as large, medium, or small.

Is Sorting a Math Skill?

Sorting is an early math skill that is important 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 is important 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.

Pumpkin Size Sorting Game

Our printable pumpkin sorting game is the perfect way to incorporate fall into big and small sorting activities. If using in a classroom setting, I recommend using a laminator machine and laminating the mats and tokens before cutting them out.

There are three mats and each one is labeled with a size: Large, Medium, Small.

There are six sets of cute pumpkins with faces (not jack-o-lanterns). Each set includes a big, medium, and small pumpkin token. Cut these out ahead of time for a very low prep activity

Mix up the pumpkin tokens and ask your child to sort them by size onto the correct mat.

You can 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 add in Medium later.
