Particularly for young children, who are not developmentally ready to understand many abstract concepts, the manipulation of concrete objects is essential to their understanding of the world around them.  Using these activities develops eye-hand coordination, fine motor skills, patience and dexterity.  These materials also invite deep concentration as the children explore the many ways in which the objects relate to one another. These Toddler 2 students are using the peg board, a popular new activity in the Manipulatives area of the classroom.  Some children enjoy matching one peg to each hole, while others like to stack the pegs as high as they can reach to make tall towers.
