Bear Size Sorting [Freebie!]

The next unit I've decided to put into the works will be a bears unit. This will be a brand new unit to my store, but will include my current Gummy Bear Fun activity that is posted. This unit will also be aligned with Teaching Strategies Gold (TSG) just like my updated Brr! Winter Activity Bundle.

In the meantime, while you wait, because who knows how long it will really take me to complete this unit, I have a freebie for you!

This freebie is for size sorting bears. This activity will also be included in the bears unit, but here is your chance to get it for FREE! 

Here is what is included:

This item includes cards to use for placing the sorting bears on, and bears of various size and color that you can print out and laminate to use for this activity. You could also use plastic bear counters if you have them.
There are cards to do a simple big vs. little size sort, and then a more complicated, small, medium, or large size sort. The bears you would use for small/little and large/big are the same size. J There is also a blank card incase you would like to use different size words, you could fill in your own.

This activity hits on the following Teaching Strategies Gold (TSG) standards:
TSG 13: Uses classification skills
  - Student must classify the bears by their size, small, medium, or large.
TSG 22: Compares and measures
  - Student must compare each bear to one another to determine the larger, smaller, etc.
TSG 26: Demonstrates knowledge of the physical properties of objects and materials.
  - Student considers the size of each bear as their physical property to determine the best size card to place that bear on.

I hope you'll head over to my TpT store to download this activity for FREE!

Thank you so much! I'm starting a maternity leave in an early childhood special education class on Monday, and I so hope I get a chance to use some of your fun activities!

Thanks so much for this Bear Sorting unit AND the Teaching Strategies Gold Objectives. My children's center I work at is using this program as well!

I just found your blog and I am super excited to get more ideas. I am currently teaching preschool at an orphanage in Haiti. Some of our kids have special needs, but all of our children are developmentally behind (I'm hoping to lessen that). I'm not trained to be a teacher, but I love kids. I have been doing this since October and am learning everyday (but still have lots to do). I like other blogs and ideas, but with such a unique situation a lot of them do not apply to me/my kids. I'm excited to learn from you!
