Montessori’s Approach for Sensorial

One of the geniuses of Maria Montessori, I believe, was her close observation of children and resulting development and design of her “materials” the children manipulate in order to absorb a specific point of interest—in other words, they learn during the ages of birth to 6 through their senses of seeing, hearing, touching, and smelling. In our Montessori classrooms you will see the classic pink tower, brown stairs, as well as a multitude of other “sensorial” materials, all of which encourage the accurate practice of matching, sorting, grading, and transferring. Within these parameters the “teachers” can create choices for the children from the world at large thus making it possible to exercise creativity and the ability to change out the materials frequently….keeping the experience for the children fresh and novel.
