Which One Does Not Belong??

We have been working on grouping and these activities are perfect for practicing and reinforcing this important early math skill. 

First, I created a Which One of These is Different worksheet (click on the link for a free download) for Emily. 

She had to find the picture that was not like the others and did not belong in the group.

Another fun hands on way to practice this grouping skill is to collect a group of items that are all the same and then include one that is slightly different.  I showed them to Emily and then she picked up the one that was different and told me why.

You’ve got to love little people, so many wonderful activities that you can use them for!!  Which one doesn’t belong???

I love these links too, they are awesome teething toys, they keep Juliette’s toys off of the floor, and great for grouping with Emily, so which one doesn’t belong??
