In addition to numeral and quantity recognition, an important component of the Toddler Math curriculum is exploring three-dimensional geometric shapes. The Geometric Solids are a traditional Montessori material and a particular favorite of many Toddler 1 students.  The shapes are alike in all qualities (color, size, weight, texture) except for their shapes, which allows the child to focus thoughtfully on this single attribute.  The children are excited to learn the names of the different solids, such as cylinder or sphere, and love to experiment with the many ways the shapes can roll, spin, stack and balance.  To reinforce this new vocabulary, many students enjoy playing What’s Missing? with a friend or teacher.  They are delighted to take turns covering their eyes and then determining which shape their partner has hidden behind his or her back.
