The Visual Discrimination – 3D Shapes, another version, of matching and sorting card activities. This exercise may be slightly easier for the Child than the 2D shapes. Sorting, a beginning math skill, may seem to be all about numbers and quantity, but there’s much more to it. Practicing many different types of sorting and matching activities, builds the children’s’ visual perception and problem solving skills. It will also increase their attention to detail. This activity forms part of the Montessori curriculum. The indirect objective is to develop the Child’s comprehension that everything around them is based upon one or other geometric shape, i.e. the book is a rectangle, an egg is an oval shape, etc.
