The Knobbed Cylinder Block is a traditional
Montessori Sensorial material that allows children to gain experience with
gradation by dimension. The Toddler 1
students use their observational skills and trial and error to gather important
information about discriminating by size.
The self-correcting nature of this piece of work allows for the students
to call upon on their own problem solving skills, rather than rely on outside
intervention from an adult. Many of the
Toddlers tend to repeat this work over and over again, satisfying their innate
curiosity and sense of order.
