    Words Their Way is a great resource for concept sorts. A CD rom with reproducible sort is even available.

    As an introduction to concept sorts this week, I read the book Strega Nona on day one. On day two I brought in a pot filled with colored pasta of different shapes. I told the kids that Strega Nona visited our room and left us some pasta but that it is all mixed up. They were then instructed on sorting by color, shape, and by color and shape. I modeled before having the children complete the task on their own. They loved it and can't wait for Strega Nona to visit our room again.
