Montessori Activity: Sorting Alphabets/Alfabetsortering/字母分类[zì mu fēn lèi]



Age: From 2 years old

Activity Duration: 10-15 minutes

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Objective(s):
1. To train the child’s fine motor skills.
2. To teach alphabets.

Materials:
1. 1 big bowl of 4 sets of small case alphabets a to e
2. 4 identical containers
3. 1 tray

* It is important that the colour of the 4 small containers are the same, so as not to confuse the child that it is alphabet sorting and not colour sorting.

Directions:
1. Demonstrate to your child by sorting one set of the alphabets from a to e each of the small bowls first.

2. As you go along, recite the sound of the alphabet.

3. Encourage your child to try to sort the other 3 sets of the alphabets a-e by putting each of letters into the correct container allocated for the particular letter.

4. Pour back all the alphabets into the bid bowl and repeat.

Cost: Alphabet magnets: 27.04 GBP (55 SGD) (I believe you can get these much cheaper in Singapore).
