This month, I was standing in line when I saw a little medicine sorter. Each section was a different color and all of them stacked up nice and neat into a fun rainbow-colored tower. I had no idea what I was going to do with this handy device, but I grabbed it anyway and by the time I got home, I had a plan.
As soon as I saw this tray sitting out needing a new activity, I knew it would work perfectly for sorting. I broke out my trusty label-maker and assigned each section a size: small, medium, large, using appropriately-sized text for pre-readers.
Inside each section of the medicine sorter, I placed three matching buttons, one in each size. When all of the sections are open, it looks like this:
And those buttons are just begging to be sorted!
Thanks for the inspiration, Dollar Tree!
