Our Sensory Material analyses and represents the attributes of things: dimensions, forms, colours, smoothness or roughness of surface, weight, temperature, flavour, noise, sounds
The Cylinder Blocks introduce the child to the first stage of visual discrimination of size. In this cylinderblock. Cylinders progress in height and diameter from small to large. Made of solid beechwood with a satin smooth lacquer finish. Each cylinder is individually sanded and lacquered.
The Cylinder Blocks introduce the child to the first stage of visual discrimination of size. Cylinders progress in diameter from thin to thick. Made of solid beechwood with a satin smooth lacquer finish. Each cylinder is individually sanded and lacquered.
The Knobless Cylinders are the final stage in the dimensional material where the child, based upon his ability to discriminate, places the individual sets of cylinders in the correct order. Each set of 10 cylinders are contained in a separate beechwood box with the lid painted the same color as the cylinders.
This series of cubes develops visual discrimination of size in 3 dimensions. Exploration with this material prepares the child for mathematical concepts in the decimal system, geometry and volume. The Pink Tower consists of ten wooden cubes painted pink, increasing increments from 1 cm3 to 1000 cm3.
This series of prisms demonstrates to the child the change in width (breadth), while the length remains constant. Practice with The Brown Stair indirectly prepares the child for concepts in plane geometry, area and volume. The prisms are crafted in precise progressions from 1x1x20 cm to 10x10x20 cm.
The Third Box Of Color Tablets introduces the final stage in color discrimination - that of grading. The box contains 63 wooden tablets representing nine colors in seven graded shades of: red, blue, yellow, green, purple, orange, brown, pink and gray.
The Geometric Form Cards consist of 3 sets of 35 cards that correspond to the figures contained in the Geometry Insets: Blue & Yellow. Series include 7 each of solid, thick lined and thin lined cards. (Box sold separately)
