Farmer's Market Color Sorting Set

Ages 3+

Develop color recognition and sorting skills with bushels of realistic, relationally sized produce. Perfect for dramatic play and nutrition lessons too.

Includes:

     • 25 foods
     • 5 baskets
     • 5 stickers for labeling – red, yellow, orange, green and purple
     • Activity guide

Baskets measure 4”H x 5.5”D

Grades: PreK+

Common Core State Standards Alignment: Counting & Cardinality, Measurement & Data, Operations & Algebraic Thinking

Learning Styles: Tactile, Visual

Skill Development:

Math – Brushes up on early math skills by counting each piece as it's tossed into a basket.

Basic Concepts - Five colors and 25 pieces of produce can give students a bushel full of knowledge as they identify and name the objects or group and sort by kind or color.

Language - Play games to incorporate receptive and expressive language skills. Request a particular color or fruit, "I want three green vegetables" or ask the student if he has a certain food. If he does not have it, have him identify what he does have to offer. Verbal exchanges through play help students process language and practice responding with their voice.

          Bought this for my 2 1/2 yr old granddaughter for Christmas. Would have rated it higher if it had been given to her already but it's not Christmas yet and I therefore haven't seen it work.

              We absolutely love this set and use it daily. My son loves to use it to sort the produce by color of course, but we use it for so much more, including learning where the fruits & vegetables come from, playing a guessing game using characteristics of the items, counting, and more. The items are very high quality and so realistic! I highly recommend this set. {Note: I received this item to review it on my blog, but all opinions are 100% honest.}

                I love the variety of foods in the set. I LOVE that there are NO donuts, cakes, muffins etc… Just fruits and veggies. It is so much to sit down and play this with our son. He will sort by colors a little bit but then just starts his own games. He enjoys filling baskets and then dumping them back out. He says, "Cooking dinner." It is very cute. If your kids have a play kitchen this would be awesome! If you are ever wondering what to get a day care provider or teacher….get this set. it is fun and educational and very versatile too.

                We received this set for a blog review and absolutely love it. My son is 22 months and plays with it every day. The fruit and vegetables are made from softer plastic that makes them look and feel more real. The pieces are big and chunky, and brightly colored. This is a fantastic set both for pretend play and learning!

                  Comments about Farmer's Market Color Sorting Set:

                  My 2 year old LOVES to sort all the fruits and vegetables away in the stack-able baskets. There are enough pieces to make this a group play date educational activity.

                  The only thing I'm going to add as a CON that I didn't add in the CON area because it's not really a flaw on their part but the part where you apply the color of the basket is small. If the basket is not faced towards the child they don't know which basket is which.

                  So I placed the EXTRA solid color stickers that come in the box, ON TOP and folded over, above the initial color sticker with the words on them. I hope that made sense! But since I did that it's been A LOT easier on him. (:

                  I am not sure WHY they don't add the stickers on themselves and have you do it. Possibly to give you the option to add with words or just the solid color. But I would rather them do the stickers and add some kind of color strip on top, the rim area.

                  Other than that, we love it!

                    Comments about Farmer's Market Color Sorting Set:

                    This is the perfect new accessory toy for my 3 year old. He can do the grocery shopping with his cart and then pretend to stop off a the farmer's market for produce. Not only is it a great vocabulary builder, we also are able to sort the fruits and vegetables by color and even food type.

                    This is a great set - with vibrant colors and realistic looking foods that kids just love!

                    I highly recommend it for both at-home play and classrooms!

                    Comments about Farmer's Market Color Sorting Set:

                    I love, love, LOVE our new Farmer's Market Coloring Sorting Set from Learning Resources. Seriously, this is one of my favorite educational kids games and toys we have ever gotten. What I love about it is the infinite ways to play, and how it will grow with your child. First of all, it's coloring matching, which is something we all try to teach our young toddlers. There are 5 baskets that are labeled with each color. It was really fun for my youngest to run around sorting out all the fruit. Also, it's great to teach my kids all about the fruits and vegetables. Some more well known like apples, strawberries, and carrots, and other fun unique ones like eggplant and yellow peppers. And finally, these also just make a great addition to any play kitchen set. The food has a great texture, smooth and slightly squishy. I know they will last a long time, and I highly recommend this fun toy set to anyone!

                      Comments about Farmer's Market Color Sorting Set:

                      I love how well-made and well-designed each piece is in the set. The individual pieces are made of a very high-quality plastic that's both realistic-looking and durable.

                      We love it for learning colors, nutrition AND for open-ended imaginative play.

                      Without question, this is one of our very favorite educational games from Learning Resources. With the number of ways we can play with this set, it'll be a standard in our house for the next few years. And I have no doubt that the high quality set will hold up to regular use.

                          For this March review I had the chance to review the Farmers Market Color Sorting Set!
                          I really think this is very age appropriate for Cameron (age: 2) !
                          The Farmers Market Color Sorting Set comes with 5 Baskets & 25 foods.
                          Each basket has color labels & each fruits and veggies to match the baskets!
