Anyone who teaches kindergarten needs to download this mat. I have teddy bears that come in different sizes and this is the perfect mat for sorting small, medium, and large. This might be the kind of "math talk" you would want your children to use to build their mathematical language. I love to pull this out after reading various versions of Goldilocks and The 3 Bears. I have my students sort attribute blocks on a mat of this type too. How can you differentiate this sort? Have your students graph their sort if they have stronger mathematical understandings. Practice the following "I have more________ and you have more ________." "I have less_______ and you have less_____." "I have more____ but you have less____." Download this mat right here.
This is a mat every kindergarten teacher needs at the beginning of the year and it can be stored with attribute blocks for students to use as part of a Math Work Station. Response sheets can be differentiated depending on a students skill level. They can be stored in big ziplocks with the manipulatives. What do you think? Get this mat here and enjoy this freebie.
