Sorting our Christmas and New Year photos
We shared the photos that we brought in from our holiday celebrations. There was lots of discussion and it was easy to pick out some similarities between the things we did. These connections became the starting point for sorting and grouping the photos. Most groups managed to sort twice. The first sort used labels such as tree, decoration, Father Christmas, lights etc. Then came the challenged to find different/new criteria for grouping. There were some imaginative approaches with categories such as, inside/outside, pairs, people, fun. Sometimes groups did not agree about the different categories for sorting - this resulted in some interesting persuasive discussion before the group was able to reach a conclusion.
