This solid hardwood Montessori Classification Learning Toy comprises a 5 compartment sorting box with 10 category wood tiles and 100 wood object tiles to sort by class.
Your child can start with one or two categories and work up to sorting 5 categories at a time. He can easily check the answers by removing sorted tiles from each compartment and comparing them to the category guide card.
If you want, you can make many additional object tiles. Just use cut-outs of objects from newspapers, magazines, coloring books, etc.
This is not mere sorting. It is a way to teach how to classify objects by category. That’s the beginning of conceptual thinking.
As with all our Montessori toys, this learning toy ships FREE to locations in the continental US. We also offer a 90-day, no-questions-asked return policy on this item. You don’t like it (impossible but you never know), just contact us so we can send you a free return label. That’s it, why hesitate?
Your child will learn about classes, and why individual objects fall within certain classes.
Concept formation is the basis of abstract thinking. It is an essential thinking skill. You should help your child develop it as early as possible.
