What's the math in this game?

This game targets an important sorting skill: children use one sorting attribute (color) to sort dot cards into multiple color sets. When children count how many cards are in each set, they are learning that sets can be counted and quantities can be compared.

To print at home: There are 7 types of cards in the dot card deck. Each type of dot card can be printed separately on colored paper. We have suggested these colors in the directions, but you can use any paper available to you. For example, you can use blue paper to print the blue circle dot cards.
