MONTESSORI APPLICATION AND TRAINING TOOLS
- Daily life practices: Daily life tools provide a comfortable transition between home and school for the child. These are the vehicles your child has always encountered at home. Experts are advised to use real forms, which we adults use, instead of imitations of everyday tools. In this process, the child will not choose the vehicle to work, the vehicle to work at the end of the work, the end of the study to learn the sum. This learning process; attention, hand-eye coordination, limits, self-control, and therefore self-respect.
- Sensory practices: The sensory means is to operate by affecting the senses of the intended child. In this process, it is aimed to be provided within the age period; is to learn conceptual knowledge by touching, observing, feeling with all sense organs and experiencing and permanence of learning.
- Mathematics: Tools are simple and easily understood tools. Children learn mathematics as a kind of game, not a prejudice that is difficult. What matters is not success but the learning of the mechanics of mathematical concepts and mathematics. Mathematical tools consist of numbers, mathematical operations and tools that describe mathematical facts. Each instrument follows each other and transfers the mathematical information piecemeal and in one unity to the child.
The pink tower, the most ‘famous’ material of Montessori classes, improves the ability of the child to visually discern differences in 3 dimensions (length, width and height). It is an excellent preparation material for mathematical studies. At the same time, it is extremely beneficial for the child’s small muscle development. At the same time the small-big concept is learned with the pink tower.
One of the ‘famous’ materials in the Montessori class is the brown staircase. With the brown ladder, the child develops the ability to visually discern differences in 2 dimensions (width and height). This material, which is a good preparation for mathematics, is also extremely useful for the child’s small muscle development. At the same time with the brown ladder, the concept of thick-thin is learned.
