We’ve been playing lots of the sorting games on Sesamestreet.org. We really like the “Elmo’s Laundry” game and “Bert’s Bottlecaps”.
Here is a picture of Elmo’s Laundry. Elmo gives the kids a description of how to sort the laundry (it keeps getting more difficult each round they play). It might say “pants with white stripes” and the kids tap the laundry that matches that description. It falls into Elmo’s laundry basket and then they tap the next one. It starts out with underwear, so they all get a kick out of that! See the tiny green button just to the right of the laundry game? If you tap/click that, it will make the game screen larger, helping us to reach on the Promethean Board. This game has been bookmarked on my student computers so they can all play it there during Math Work Stations.
Here is “Bert’s Bottlecaps”. The kids have to sort Bert’s bottlecaps based on the attributes he gives them. This one was red objects on the left, animals on the right, and red animals in the middle. This one is a little bit harder, but once the kids catch on, they really do well!
I also like that it’s free and there are no ads that pop up on this site! 🙂
