Visual discrimination activities are my favt around toddler age groups.
This blog has tons of resources on it from few years back. Click Here
Now that my 3-year-old is going through that phase, things are starting to look interesting again.
If VD is a new term for you, let me explain it here in simple words.
It is the ability to determine differences and similarities between objects.
After sorting by one attribute, we are slowly moving towards sorting by 2 attributes for my toddler. And a sly introduction to graphing.
To think of it everything boils down to Computational thinking which plays a major role in CODING.
Let me not confuse you further.
Look at it like this
Sorting—-Colour Sort—-Number Identification—Math—-Graph—Computational thinking— Coding
Pick your uno cards today and recreate it today. Or regular cards would do.
If you dont have UNO cards-
Regular cards: King ,queen, Jack and sort in spade, clubs etc
Chess board : King, queen, bishop and Rookie – white and black colours graph
How to extend this activity for older children?
Add all the numbers on Uno cards and include all the four colours.
We reduced the number of attributes because we were doing it for my preschooler.
P.S: I have a separate post on Sorting and Graphing here below which explains the WHY’s of this activity.
There are tons of other activities done with UNO cards from pinterest.
Check them out. Most of it are low prep activities that you can create on the go.
