Wooden Geometric Cabinet
Geometry is a subset of mathematics that deals with the shapes of objects, including size, shapes, angles, and dimensions. It is one of the oldest branches of math because it helps to describe the shapes we see all around us! To prepare children for future work with geometry, we present them with the geometry cabinet, which introduces the child to over 40 different shapes. This cabinet contains six drawers, each holding wooden shapes the child can feel, hold, and manipulate so that he or she can learn to distinguish between the different shapes. The various figures are grouped by similar shapes: Circles, Rectangles, Triangles (there are seven types!), Quadrilaterals (such as a rhombus and a parallelogram), Curved figures (including an oval and an ellipse), and Regular Polygons (such as pentagons and hexagons).
Three-period lessons are the primary way Montessori teachers introduce children to new vocabulary. These lessons are given every day in the primary classroom. They are quick, simple, fun! And follow a simple formula that I will share with you today.
But first, allow me to share a bit of history. Three-period lessons were originally developed by the French physician Edouard Seguin. Seguin was a psychiatrist who developed methods for helping children with learning differences more easily associate objects and their names. Dr. Montessori was inspired by his work and adopted his approach for her classrooms. Fun fact: Edouard Seguin also developed the geometry cabinet!
The Three Period Lesson is comprised of three different stages:
