Matching ๐Ÿ‘ƒ๐ŸปSoaps (Sensorial ๐Ÿ–๏ธ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘‚๐Ÿ‘…๐Ÿ‘ƒ Activities 101 ๐ŸŽฅ Series ๐ŸŽ‡)

Today, we are stimulating the sense of ๐Ÿ‘ƒ๐ŸปSMELL with the variety of soaps during this Montessori Sensorial Activity.

What is Sensorial Work? Sensorial comes from the word "sense," where a child is able to concentrate on the refinement of all the senses, from visual to stereognostic. The purpose of sensorial work is for the child to acquire conscious information and to be able to then make classifications in his/her environment. Dr. Maria Montessori believed that sensorial experiences began at birth. Through senses, the child studies the environment, beginning to understand his/her place in it. The child, to Dr. Montessori, is a โ€œsensorial explorer."

All of the Sensorial materials were designed to isolates just 1โ—๏ธquality which is to be worked with by a child, thus allowing for intense focus and a deeper refinement of that one quality, without distractions from other senses. Today, we are triggering the sense of ๐Ÿ‘ƒ๐ŸปSMELL.

 A child focuses ONLY on the sense of ๐Ÿ‘ƒ๐Ÿปsmell while matching the pairs of soap.

DSC_0165The activity is completed when the child had matched all the pairs of soap.

Other ways to stimulate the sense of smell is to utilize your kitchen: cook with strong-smelling scents, like onion, garlic, or herbs. You can also use a matching opaque spice jars while blindfolded. Or use fresh fruit or vegetables while blindfolded to have your child guess: "What fruit/vegetable is it?"
