Sorting is an important skill for future more complex math learning. It teaches children about similarities and differences, grouping objects together, logical thinking and more.
Many preschool-aged children naturally sort and organize toys during their free play. And we can build on this interest even further and help them out with providing more structured categorizing activities such as sorting worksheets.
