  • Sorting is the act of separating things and putting them in a particular order.

  • The attribute is a characteristic that is ascribed to something. When students sort words, they are looking for words with similar characteristics and then grouping those words together.

  • Words can be sorted by concepts (e.g., food, sports), or other attributes (e.g., words that end in -at, or names).

  • The intent of this standard is that students are transitioning from sorting only pictures to sorting words into teacher-given and student-created categories.

Due to recursive nature of the standards, it is essential that teachers are aware of how all objectives within and between strands work together for optimal instruction.
