Working with a small group, provide each child with 3 jar sheets and a stack of shuffled candy cards. Holding the task card up, so that learners can get a clear visual of the candy in the jars, slowly and clearly read the directions out loud. Students will then work to sort and classify their candy onto their jars according to the directions. This activity practices classification by both 1 and 2 attributes.

BROWN BEAR LINEUP ORDINAL NUMBERS SHEETS (COLOR 2/B&W 2) – BEAR CARDS (COLOR 5/B&W 5)
