Sorting and categorizing objects is an essential skill for both math and reading, which helps children master "same" and "different" and then practice more complex applications of the skill, such as grouping like items. In these sorting games, kids categorize items by color, letter sound, shape dimension, and other categories. Check out our entire collection of math games for more practice with important building blocks.
Categorizing and sorting objects is a natural human skill that develops early, whether it's sorting toys or blocks, or snacks on your plate. With our library of interactive sorting games from Education.com, your child can strengthen a range of skills from shape recognition to figurative language simply by following their innate desire to sort and organize. For young learners, start with the basics by using simple categories of shape and color. As your students progress, they can move on to identifying more complex items such as 2D and 3D shapes, as well as introducing terms of measurement like length, width, and height to compare and sort size. Looking for an even higher challenge? More advanced learners can combine sorting with strengthening their literacy skills, including vowel sounds, complete sentences, parts of speech like nouns and verbs, and even types of figurative language such as metaphors and similes. Your kids will love playing these games in the classroom, at home for a little extra practice, or even on the go with your tablet or smartphone.
