EARLY CLASSIFYING SKILLS

Did you know that the developmental milestone to learn to CLASSIFY objects emerges at about 18 M when your toddler is using brainpower to sort favorite toys! So, start EARLY ON by offering engaging and stimulating invitations to sort!

WHY SPACIAL AWARENESS is IMPORTANT!

Our visual and tactile perception consists of understanding HOW objects are situated in space. Thus, gaining an understanding of the attributes of those objects such as relative size, which can be a distinguishing characteristic, is a key to mastering this important skill. Moreover, classifying objects into categories, with Montessori inspired Pre-K invitations to learn, allow children to mentally and physically organize things in their world.

WHY LEARNING TO MEASURE is SO IMPORTANT

Toddlers apply concepts of measurement in many everyday tasks when they compare sizes of toys, lengths of trains, and even portion of food being served. And early on, while exploring ways to compare, they use non-standard measurement tools such as hands or feet to estimate length, and offering them blocks or LEGO prices is a great alternative! Thus, by developing the abilities to compare two or more objects, children learn to understand that objects can be measured in different ways!

MATCHING SKILLS

Developmental milestone to learn to match objects emerges from age 15 -19 M when your soon-to-be toddler is using brainpower to match favorite toys! Sorting is also an amazing tool to enhance problem-solving, critical thinking, and spatial awareness (think of it as a DIY puzzle ), so donโ€™t underestimate the power of sorting through PLAY!
