Real Picture Number Sorting
The Real Picture Sorting Activities resource has TONS of sorting practice. One of the activities included are number sorts. Practice number sorting, non-identical matching, and counting skills with this activity! You can make this as simple or as complex as your students need. For beginning independent workers, give them just one sorting mat and the correct pieces so they can complete this as an errorless learning activity. For more advanced independent workers, give them multiple sorting mats to test their skills! You can grab this activity HERE!
