Letter or Number ~ Sorting Activity

Aiden hasn’t quite grasped the difference between letters and numbers.  When we are working on counting he will say “that is the letter two”.   To help him understand what is a number and what is a letter we “fished” for letters and numbers and sorted them. 

I added foam numbers and letters to a container of water and gave Aiden a small drainer to fish them out.

I printed pages titled Letters and Numbers, put them in page protectors so the letters and numbers would stick, and taped them to the wall.

Aiden fished a letter or number out of the bucket, said what it was (with help from Mommy) and stuck it to the Letter or Number sheet.

We packed a lot of learning into our 15 minutes of fun!  Aiden worked on sorting, naming the numbers and letters of the alphabet and colors.
