“If I could give an A+, I would! These activities are easy to use, provide practice with academic language, teach kids to organize their thinking, and teach crucial math concepts aligned to standards.” –Licia R.
We constantly tell students to show their work or explain their thinking. Using math sorts weekly will give students practice in putting their thinking into words. Your students will use math vocabulary as they explain how they sorted their cards. They will learn from each other as they collaborate in groups. You can quickly assess student learning as you listen to their conversations.
I’ve included two versions of each math sort. The first version includes the category labels. This version tells the students how to sort each card. It gives them a starting point to explain how they sorted their cards. The second version requires students to come up with the math vocabulary on their own. There may also be more than one way to sort the cards. An excellent way to extend each math sort is to have students create their own cards for each category.

Each bundle of math sorts is aligned to the Common Core state standards. You can quickly find the topic you are working on. Each math sort focuses on one topic, so you can easily align the activity to your state’s standards. Multiple math sorts are included for each math standard.
Math Sorts are truly a print-and-go resource! Do your students need to review rounding, shape attributes, or equivalent fractions? Simply print a class set of the math sort and you are good to go
Math Sorts are a much needed break from the textbook. Students enjoy cutting, sorting, and talking with their friends. This is one activity they will look forward to completing!
