Kindergarten Christmas Math Centers-Sorting

Hello/Bonjour! 

Welcome to the last post in my Christmas math center series. Today I will be showcasing some easy sorting ideas using the same materials as in the last posts. These ideas are all easy for the students to complete on their own. I have included some free materials to aid you in creating the centers such as the colour labels, size labels and wreaths. The labels are in English and French!  To see the other three posts in the series and download the free printables click the links below:

I hope you have enjoyed this series and found some ideas you can use in your classroom this Christmas season.

For your convenience I have linked the materials used to Amazon where you can find the same/similar items in this post. I do have to say that by using these link to make a purchase I will also receive a small commission from Amazon with no additional cost to you. This will help me continue to create more exciting content for teachers. 

 I love how sorting these bells looks like something from a science lab! This container was originally from a cake decorating set with 4 different sprinkles in it. Anything can be re-purposed for the classroom! Now, it is perfect for sorting small items like these bells. To make this center more challenging I would use a tool like tweezers to pick up the bells for fine motor practice. These colour labels are included in the free download and can be used for any center.  You can find similar jingle bells on Amazon    here . If you want the same test tube set I have you can find it on Amazon  here , with a bonus of sprinkles included! I like that the test tubes are not too thin so you can put bigger items inside.

 These wreaths I have also included as a freebie, all you need to do is print the number you need. You can either attach the labels to the wreaths or print the colours you need on them. Any small items would be perfect to place on these, you can provide the materials or ask the students to find things around the classroom! In the picture below I used an assortment of Christmas items to sort onto the wreaths.

 These muffin cups are perfect for sorting. This center is so easy all I needed to do was put out the confetti, stick on the labels and the muffin cups and it was good to go! You can find similar confetti on Amazon  here .

 I love how these Christmas pom poms came in different sizes-perfect for sorting! I used these mini gift bags from the dollar store to have the students sort the pom poms into small, medium and large. These size labels are also included in the free download. I used these Christmas clothespins to have students pick up the pom poms for some fine motor practice. You can find Christmas pom poms on Amazon  here - I like the ones that are 3 sizes so I can use them for sorting.

 In addition to sorting by colour and size, students could also sort by Christmas shape. For this activity I did not put labels out but gave them an example and allowed the students to organize the shapes themselves to see what they could do on their own. You can find similar muffin liners on amazon  here . You can use muffin liners for many different centers, I used them for counting centers as well.
