Give your child three different snacks. Talk about what’s the same and what’s different. Ask them if they can group one type of snack together (like all the fruit). Then ask if they can find another way to sort the snacks, like by size, shape, or color.
See what your child is learning
Making connections is an essential skill for learning. When your child groups things, they’re learning things like size, color, and shape. They’re also learning to think flexibly by seeing how things can go together in different ways.
