A young child meets the world around him through the constant use of all of his senses. Through sight, touch, sound, taste, and smell, the Sensorial Montessori materials enable each child to clarify, classify, and comprehend his world. The Montessori program offers a multi‐sensory approach to learning, encouraging a child to use all senses for learning.
The Sensorial materials enable a child to internalize such concepts as size, shape, color, sound, similarities, and differences. These skills provide a basis for concurrent and future activities in math, music, and language.
