Sensorial Materials

SENSORIAL

Montessori Sensorial Materials are materials used in the Montessori classroom to help a child develop and refine their five senses. Use of these Sensorial Materials constitutes the next level of difficulty after those of Practical Life.
The development of the child at this stage is characterized by a sequence of sensitive periods. The Montessori Sensorial Materials have been designed to respond to these sensitive periods.
Maria Montessori stated, “The secret of preparing one for a particular skill consists in utilizing that period of life between the ages of 3 and 6, when there is a natural inclination to perfect ones senses and movements.”
In terms of adaptation Maria Montessori strived to offer the environment to the child in a very clear, concrete form through the use of “materialized abstractions” as they allowed the child to reorganize his     knowledge according to new Practical Life principles and, thus, increase his capacity for learning. 
The training of the senses is of utmost importance in the education of the young child. The development of the senses actually precedes that of the higher intellectual faculties. In fact the child’s sensori-motor experiences are the foundation of his intellectual life.

Pink Tower

Ten wooden cubes painted pink and varying from 1 x 1 x 1cm to 10 x 10 x 10cm, including one spare 1x1x1 cube.

" Montessori Pink Tower differs in 3 dimensions" - Maria Montessori.

Information: 
The work is designed to provide the child with a concept of "big" and "small." 
The child starts with the largest cube and puts the second-largest cube on top of it. This continues until all ten cubes are stacked on top of each other. 
The control of error is visual. The child sees the cubes are in the wrong order and knows that they should fix them.

The successive dimensions of each cube are such that if the cubes are stacked flush with a corner, the smallest cube may be fit squarely on the ledge of each level.
