Description

How do the Single Shape Puzzle – Small Circle align to Montessori?

  • they are simple, focusing on one concept at a time
  • the focus is on one skill at a time
  • puzzles self correcting, and offer a sense of accomplishment when completed
  • use a real image, we suggest starting with geometric shapes

What are the benefits of puzzles?

  • puzzles foster the Child’s
    • cognitive, and fine motor development
    • they promote concentration, coordination, and a sense of order
    • this improves problem-solving skills, and
    • they develop spatial awareness
  • the knobs on first puzzles, strengthen the Child’s pincer grasp, as they lift each piece out of the frame.  The fingers instinctively, and unconsciously, learn that this grasp is the correct way to hold a pencil.

Which is the best puzzle for my toddler?

The Guide follows a natural progression of puzzles, as s/he introduces them to toddlers (9 to 18 months). Start with puzzles that feature large knobs or pegs; because children can easily grasp them, as they learn how to remove or replace each piece.

Introduce shapes to the Child, separately, following the suggested sequence: circle, square, triangle. You can gradually introduce two, then three, and finally all four shapes simultaneously; increasing the difficulty level; as they learn, and  master the complexity of each puzzle.

Gradually introduce puzzles with smaller knobs, and more pieces, as the Child’s pincer grasp, and fine motor skills, improve.  Remember to follow the Child, they will let you know when they are ready to progress to more complex work.

Care Instructions

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.
