Description

A first introduction to visual discrimination of size and dimension

Between the ages of 2.5 and 3.5 years, young children begin sorting and ordering items.  These block cylinders take advantage of this sensitive period to introduce products that will teach them the various methods of ordering by height, width and dimension. The Toddler Cylinder Blocks introduces the Child to differences in size.  There are 4 cylinders in each of the 4 blocks.

These cylinders, indirectly focus’ the Child’s attention, on visual discrimination of size and dimension.  This product does not form part of Maria Montessori’s traditional activities; but because parents and teachers requested this mini-version of the standard cylinder blocks; we sourced this product for them.

What is the difference between each cylinder?

  • 1st Set: the measurements of the cylinders’ height and diameter decreases
  • 2nd Set: the measurements of the cylinders’ diameter decreases as the height increases
  • 3rd Set: the measurements of the cylinders’ diameter decreases as the height remains constant
  • 4th Set: the measurements of the cylinders’ height decreases as the diameter increases

Features of the Toddler Cylinder Blocks

  • the direct objective for the Child, is to fit a cylinder into a hole in the block
  • made from solid beech wood
  • the blocks provide a control of error
  • suitable for the toddler environment
  • a quality product
  • an intense, pleasurable working experience

Size of each block

26.5cm x 7 cm / (10½” x 3″)

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.
