Our schools show that children of different ages help one another. There are many things which no teacher can convey to a child of three, but a child of five can do it with ease. — Maria Montessori
Five Areas of Montessori: 2. Sensorial Area
The sensorial area enagages all 5 senses.
Children work on sorting colours, organising by sound and texture, smell and taste (under close supervision!). This enables children to order and classify objects and is a foundation for geometry and math.
