How to Play:

Here are two suggestions for playing this sorting game:

  • Spread the cards out on the table – children sort the cards into the correct order (in a group/pair/individually).
  • Share the cards out equally in a group. Going around the circle, each child takes a turn to place a card in the correct order.
