The sensorial area helps children develop three skills used in math sequence; learn discrimination between objects, classifications, and experience with a graded series.
Learning discrimination between objects includes thickness, length, texture, and shape. Some of the materials used are rods, cylinders, prisms and cubes.
Classifications is finding similarities such as matching activities. Children find two items that are the same within a set. These activities include sound cylinders, fabric matching and color boxes.
Experience with a graded series are grading items from heavy to light, large to small, and thick to thin.
Sensorial is a continuation, an overlapping of ideas, thoughts, concepts and materials from the other curriculum in the classroom.
