A rectangular box with two compartments and a flip lid with four geometric shapes.
The child inserts the shapes in the correct holes and flips the lid over to expose the shapes.
Repetition of the exercise provides the toddler with exploring the use of the hand, experiences of fitting objects into holes, hand-eye coordination, finger and wrist movement and is an introduction to basic geometric shapes.
A set of 2 cloth bags (red and blue) containing 10 pairs of small wooden geometric solids for matching.
This sensorial Montessori activity’s purpose is visual discrimination but as with all Montessori activities it aims to develop more than just one skill. It is also a tool to learn and increase language, vocabulary and concentration.
The direct aim of this activity was developed by Maria Montessori to refine and develop the stereognostic tactile sense and memory of a child. The indirect aim is language and vocabulary development and also to learn the skill of concentrating.
This 32-page book offers 24 ways of teaching geometric solids, engaging diverse learning styles. Children learn to identify, analyze and classify three-dimensional shapes, describe and analyze the results of subdividing and combining shapes, and use geometric models to solve problems in other areas of math.
