Shape Sequence Sorting Set (18 Pieces)
€18.69 ex. VAT
Recognizing colour, shape and size, and sorting objects into groups are the "building blocks" of beginning math skills. What better way to explore these important concepts than with boldly coloured wooden blocks and frame. Extension activities are included to explore form, fun and function all in one toy.
Use this wooden block set as a tool to build expressive and receptive language skills, and see hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills grow, too. The varying shapes, sizes, and colours provide endless activities to reinforce language. For example, focus on receptive language by asking children to remove blocks of one shape, colour, or size. (Make the task more challenging with a sequence of spoken instructions, such as, "Put in the small green triangles, then the large orange squares, then all of the blue octagons.") Ask the children to first repeat the instructions aloud to review expressive language and auditory processing skills. Or encourage children to remove the blocks in any order they choose, describing each block as they go.
Extension Activities: More Ways to Play and Learn:
- Tallest to Smallest: Remove all blocks from the sequence board and sort them into six groups, as in Sorting Activities. Ask the child to choose the tallest blocks from each group and line them up in matching spaces at one end of the sequence board. When this is completed, ask the child to place the medium blocks in the remaining matching spaces on the sequence board. With all of the blocks in position, ask the child to point to the tallest row of blocks, the medium row of blocks and the smallest row of blocks.
- Add and Subtract: Place one or two blocks in the sequence board and position the sequence board in front of the child. Add one block at a time while guiding the child through addition problems. For example, you might say, "If we have one block and we add one block, how many blocks do we have in all? One plus one is two. What if we add one more block?" Point to each block, counting aloud. Encourage addition skills by continuing to add blocks.
