Where does this go?


The children have been sorting and labelling the resources.

The children have been exploring their new nursery environments after their summer break. To support the children’s learning the children and staff have been taking photographs of the resources to label the storage drawers.

The loose parts stored near the sand are now easily returned to their correct storage drawer.

The children were heard discussing the labels. “That’s a picture of the shells.  The shells go in there.” “I found a lid in the sand. It goes in the bottle top drawer.”

Young children start sorting early on when they put their toys in colour-oriented piles. Colour is just one way to sort items. Here are some other sorting groups the children have been demonstrating during their play in nursery.

  • Size
  • Shape
  • Texture
  • Length
  • Type of objects
