Since birth, every child has been absorbing thousands of impressions from his environment. The Sensorial Area in the Montessori classroom helps the child refine these impressions and bring order them. The material pictured above is called the 'Constructive Triangles' and it gives the child the experience of making linear shapes from triangles.
It is so exciting for the child to start to recognize these shapes in the greater environment! The children start to recognize rectangles, squares, circles, and much more!
This is the beginning of exploration and discovery - as the child becomes more conscious of shape, dimension, color, sound, and depth, she can explore with greater joy, discovery, and focus!
