- IT SUPPORTS YOUR CHILD’S KEY DEVELOPMENTAL STAGES. Montessori is a scientific method of education that is focused on the key developmental stages that all children move through on their way to adulthood. In each of these stages, children are in a sensitive period for learning different skills and activities that will help them reach their next developmental milestone. Doctor Maria Montessori believed that if children were provided with the opportunities to explore and practice these skills, they would make extraordinary progress.
- MONTESSORI TOYS ENCOURAGE IMAGINATION. Montessori toys give children the ability to take control. While some Montessori toys come in the shape of vehicles, food, or common household items, they still encourage children to use their imaginations to incorporate them into learning and play. Other Montessori educational toys come in basic shapes, such as sticks, blocks, arcs, triangles, and circles. These basic shapes allow children to really explore their uses and come up with creative ways to use them in different subject areas.
- MONTESSORI TOYS INCORPORATE REAL-LIFE SKILLS. As children engage in imaginative play, much of it will trend toward real-life scenarios. For example, children may have Montessori toys in the shape of food and common household items to use as they play a game of house or grocery store. Even if children just have basic shapes, they may begin to use wooden toys and their imaginations to build real-life skills.
- MONTESSORI TOYS ENCOURAGE YOUR CHILD INTERACTION SKILLS. When children use their imaginations and practice real-life scenarios, they often like to bring others in on their play. Toys that have voices or other sound effects often encourage solo play since children get the interaction and responses they crave from the toy itself. f you have multiple children at home, Montessori toys become something more than one child can play with at once. If you only have one child or prefer to focus on education in a one-on-one setting, your can provide that interaction with your child. By interacting with your child as they play with wooden toys you can help build their understanding and provide positive reinforcement as they make decisions.
- MONTESSORI TOYS DEVELOP YOUR CHILD’S REASONING SKILL. As children manipulate the different shapes and sizes of Montessori toys, they’re building their reasoning skills. They also build reasoning skills as they organize their Montessori toys into different categories. For example, they may opt to organize them by size, by shape, or even by color.
- MONTESSORI TOYS DEVELOP YOUR CHILD’S PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS. Montessori toys also have the ability to support problem-solving. On a more basic level, children can use Montessori toys to help provide visual representations of addition and subtraction problems. They can also be used to create logic puzzles for children to solve, to build towers that will withstand different forces acting upon them, or to create models to help represent different advanced math and science problems.
- MONTESSORI TOYS BUILD YOUR CHILD’S FINE MOTOR SKILLS. As children manipulate Montessori toys, they also build their fine motor skills. Montessori toys come in different shapes and sizes. Rather than being molded to fit a small child’s hand, they can sometimes be a bit clunky and awkward for children to handle. While clunky and awkward may not seem like an ideal trait in a toy, the design of wooden toys requires children to work on different ways of grasping and manipulating the toys to get them to do what they need them to do. Babies and toddlers can work on basic grasping skills with larger Montessori blocks and toys, while preschoolers and older kids can use Montessori shapes, beads, and sticks to focus on a finer grasp, twisting the wrist, and other key motor skills.
