The first extension to the cylinder blocks, helps to train the Child’s visual discrimination in size, height and dimension. Known as the cylinder block cards, this resource acts as the control of error.
These cards encourage children to test themselves independently. They visually match the cylinder to the circle on the card, then select the cylinder they think will match the circles on the card, best. If it matches the cylinder is placed on the circle, if not they try again, until they achieve an accurate match.
These cards provide them with the independence to work on their own. The child who struggles with the concept of grading, will improve their skills by practicing this activity.
Note, you can purchase the cylinders, used in the gallery images, separately.
