Description

The Geometric Cabinet introduces the plane geometric shapes to the child.  This cabinet contains six drawers of flat wooden insets portraying different types of:

  • triangles
  • rectangles
  • polygons
  • circles
  • irregular four-sided and curved figures

Each inset has a little knob by which the child can move it in and out of its wooden frame.

Initially, the 3 year old uses the shapes as if they were a puzzle.  Then they match the insets to the geometric cards, an extension to the geometric cabinet.  Finally, they make the transition from a solid form to a shape outlined with a pencil;  preparatory to recognizing the different shapes of written letters and numerals. Finally, they are used to calculate geometry.

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.

Care instructions for Childrens House Wooden Materials:

  • 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.
  • Avoid leaving any of our wooden product in direct sunlight, as it may warp certain woods and/ or the coating may fade over time.
