Ball Tracker

By using the Montessori styled Ball Tracker, the toddler is able to track the ball as it moves from one level to the next.  The movement of the ball helps to develop strong eye muscle movement, which will later aid their reading skills.  Indirectly, they develop focus and concentration.

Description

Once an infant has mastered the art of standing, the Child quickly begins to negotiate the room, to investigate items of interest to them.  The unique Montessori-styled Ball Tracker stands at the perfect height to claim the toddlers attention.  It won’t be long before the toddler demands to “do it for himself”.  The light-weight wooden balls fit into the toddlers small hand with ease.  The base is a rectangular box, attached to the sides of the tracker, thus providing sufficient support should the toddler use the product to “pull” themselves up to stand next to it.

Learning how to track the movement of the ball running from one end to the other and to drop down onto the next track, is the direct objective.  This improves focus and concentration and indirectly prepares their eye for left to right movement.  Once the Child has gained some experience with the tracker, the care giver can present the colours to the Child, possibly by talking to the infant e.g. “the ball is now moving down the green track and it is now on the next track, the pink one”. and so they will instinctively understand that each colour has a name.

The sturdy ball tracker is partially constructed from Birch plywood.  You are required to secure the base to the central upright tracker with the 4 screws we provide.

One of the attractions to the Montessori Method is the extensive use of wood.

We use several types of wood, sourced from renewable sources, in the production of our Montessori Materials.

  • Solid beechwood for cylinder blocks, pink towers, dressing frames and brown stairs.
  • Birchply for trays, holders and animal and botany puzzles.
  • MDF for puzzle maps
  • Pineply for boxes and containers

 

We ensure that the coatings and inks used are not only eco-friendly, but also non-toxic.

Our wooden products are manufactured by responsible partner factories both locally and abroad and ensure that fair labour practices are adopted.

  • If wooden products are exposed to liquids, wipe dry as quickly as possible.
  • Most of the surfaces can be wiped with a damp cloth if exposed to dirt or grime.
