Students will be able to sort objects and determine the sorting rule.
Introduction (5 minutes)
- Introduce your class to the lesson by telling them that today they will begin to explore math word sorting.
- Define sorting as the action of grouping like objects together.
- Tell your class that they are going to help you with the lesson.
Explicit Instruction/Teacher Modeling (15 minutes)
- Call up several students who have something similar about them such as clothing, hair color, or shoes.
- Ask your students to guess what is similar about the students. Give them some clues by drawing their attention to the students' similar qualities.
- Explain what your sorting rule for this group was.
- Repeat this process again with another group of students and a new rule.
Guided Practice/Interactive Modeling (10 minutes)
- Give each student a small group of blocks.
- Tell your students that they are now going to sort their blocks and that they should be able to tell you what their sorting rule will is.
- If a student has difficulty, point out the similarities and the differences with the blocks.
Independent Working Time (10 minutes)
- After students have had time to practice their sorting, introduce Animal Jumble.
- Review the instructions, pass out the pencils, and have the students work independently.
- Enrichment: Have your students who have completed their work early or need a challenge work on a computer game such as Cocoa Color Sorting.
- Support: Have the student work with a classmate. Limit the choices for sorting to just a few such as color or size.
Assessment (10 minutes)
- Assess informally while watching students sort blocks. Make note of those students that cannot explain how they sorted their blocks.
- Assess the worksheets when completed. Look for areas where sorting is not consistent.
Review and Closing (10 minutes)
- Gather the students together. Ask them what sorting means.
- Let students explain how they sorted their blocks.
- Let one student gather several students together who have something similar and have his classmates guess the rule of sorting.
