Geometric Solids

Through manual manipulation of geometric solids, a child uses muscular tactile senses as well as sharpens visual perception of solid figures. Geometric solids are all the same color so the child can focus on their shape's appearance, the way they feel in the child's hand,  and the way they act upon a flat surface. This guides appropriate language for each geometric solid. It also helps make the child aware of the solid shapes that surround him or her.

Practical Life

Practical life develops gross and fine motor skills, prepares children for writing and building independence and responsibility, and supports the development of order and concentration. This takes place in all classrooms in a developmentally appropriate manner.
