Children are continuously learning new things from their surroundings. This process is fundamental to everything a child will do in his future. Montessori philosophy describes these activities as work and the objects that a child uses to learn the important skills as materials. This is the reason why these objects are referred to as Montessori Materials rather than Montessori Toys.
Montessori Materials means Fun and Play
Each Montessori Material serves a different purpose, but it’s quite easy to miss the utter brilliance of these learning materials if you see them as fun diversions.
Montessori Materials are actively used in a Montessori classroom to help a child develop his senses and motor skills. Montessori teaching materials are arranged on low and open shelves. Children are encouraged to choose any Montessori Material they wish to use and work. These materials develop an interest and invite an activity. A simple set of ramps with balls teaches the child about physics and at the same time is entertaining. An important learning is happening at each stage of their work. The bright colored alphabets enable a child to distinguish between different shapes and sizes helping them tune their motor skills.
The most fascinating and amazing part about Montessori Learning Materials is the fact that they are self-correcting in nature. This eliminates the need for a Montessori teacher to correct the child. As a child is able to solve problems independently, this boosts self-confidence and analytical thinking.
