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

1. To train the child’s fine motor skills.
2. To teach alphabets.

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.

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).
