Montessori Sensorial Education

Maria Montessori mentioned that the first of the child’s organs to begin functioning are his / her senses. The period of life between the ages of three and six years covers a period of rapid physical development. Nature has given us five senses : sight, touch, taste, smell and hearing. By using the five senses, the child makes a mental order of his / her environment.

These activities are designed to reinforce the five senses to help guide the children in learning to discriminate, clarify and compare. Sensorial exercise help prepare for intellectual development in an orderly manner. The Sensorial materials and exercises present qualities such as color, form, dimension, sounds, weight, shape, texture, size and smell in and enjoyable way and are great fun for the children.

Why Sensorial Training is Important?

❖ The sensitive periods are transitory. Sense impressions are of long duration. The sensitive periods can be past, but once sensibility has been acquired it will be long lasting.
