Learning to Love Math: Preschoolers

Laundry Sort

How you can help at home: Make doing laundry with your child fun and educational!
By Miriam Myers , GreatSchools Staff

Teach your preschooler early math skills by having him/her help you sort laundry. He'll be using color recognition, categorizing and counting skills.

What you'll need
•Dirty laundry of various colors

Here's how to do it

Before you put the laundry in the washer have your child help you sort the whites from the darks. Explain why mixing white and dark colored clothing can cause the dark colors to come off on the white colors. You could even make this more fun by sorting more colors (blues, reds, etc.)

When the laundry is clean have your child focus on a particular task. You might ask him to make a pile of shirts, pants or socks. You could also have him count the number of shirts in the pile. Another time you can have your child sort the socks by color or size. Who knew doing the laundry could be so fun!
