Kindergarten Sorting and Picture Graphs Worksheets

Introduction

Students generate data by sorting objects by color, shape, and size. You can reinforce this skill by having students sort buttons, socks, coins, blocks, or other small objects. Limit the number of categories to 3.

Some of the worksheets provide pictures for students to cut out and sort. The pictures are then glued or taped to a picture graph. You may want to make multiple copies of the blank picture graph and the pictures students sort. You can then combine sets of pictures to give students more practice sorting and graphing. Limit the number of categories to 3 and the number of objects in each category to 10.
