iLove Letters: Color Sort

Another letter activity for the younger set of kids. This can be done when no letters are known.
Activty: Color Sort
Supplies: Magnetic Letters
Model sorting magnetic letter by color. Then, have your child sort magnetic letters by color! That's it. Pretty easy.

What's the purpose? By sorting letters by color, your child is beginning to learn the skill of LOOKING for distinctive characteristics as well as learning the skill of SORTING letters into categories. Soon your child will be ready to sort letters by similar features so this is an easy preliminary activity. If your child is new to sorting, trying giving him letters of just 2 different colors.
