<div>=== Age ===<br />
<br />
2 1/2 - 4 1/2 yrs<br><br />
<br />
=== Materials ===<br />
<br />
An open box containing nine squares of material: three with a polka-dot pattern, three with a check pattern, and three with a striped pattern, (or any highly contrasting pattern).<br><br />
<br />
=== Preparation ===<br />
<br />
This is an individual exercise, which may be done on a neutral colored mat on the table or floor. (Note: Work cycle to be observed). <br><br><br />
<br />
=== Presentation ===<br />
<br />
#Invite the child to work with the 'fabric patterns'. Show the child where the fabric patterns are located on the shelf. When the child has made the selection of the material, begin with the third step after naming the material for the child.<br />
#Indicate the procedure of carrying the material: one hand on each side of the box, with the thumbs on the top and the fingers on the bottom.<br />
#Place the box on a rug in the upper left corner.<br />
#Say, "I will match fabric patterns."<br />
#Remove the top fabric square and place it below the box. Note the pattern of the fabric.<br />
#Remove the next square from the box, and place it next to the first fabric square, noting whether it is similar. If similar, leave it to the right of the first square. If different, place the second fabric square below the first fabric square.<br />
#Proceed with the remaining squares, matching similar patterns.<br />
#When the material has been completed, return the fabric squares one at a time, beginning at the top left&nbsp; and continuing left to right and top to bottom.<br />
#Return the material to the shelf in the manner described in #3.<br />
<br />
=== Control Of Error ===<br />
<br />
Visual disharmony<br><br />
<br />
=== Points Of Interest ===<br />
<br />
Though the same pattern, it may be large or small, thick or thin, etc. Material of clothing has describable patterns.<br><br />
<br />
=== Purpose ===<br />
<br />
*Development of concentration, order, coordination, and independence.<br />
*Discern patterns in materials.<br />
*Development of visual sense of size and shape (pattern).<br />
*Responds to the sensitive need of order in the child.<br />
*Development of problem solving techniques.<br />
<br />
=== Variation ===<br />
<br />
#Proceed as in Presentation 1 through step #4. Remove each fabric square and place it on the rug in mixed order in a horizontal line at the top. Select the fabric square to the left and place it below the empty box. Beginning at the left of the line of fabric squares, select the next fabric square. Place it next to the first fabric square selected, and if it has the same pattern, leave the square where it is. If it does not match, place it below the first fabric square. Select the next fabric, and place it to the right of the first fabric. Proceed in the manner until all fabric patterns have been matched.<br />
#Place the matching fabric squares at a rug a distance apart. Continue making matches from rug to rug.<br />
#Select a fabric square, and go through the classroom to match the pattern to an object in the environment. Return the pattern and object to the rug.<br />
#Remembering the pattern, go through the environment to match the pattern of the fabric square on the rug with a pattern in the classroom.<br />
#Cover the patterns. Name the pattern, go through the classroom and, by memory, select an object with a similar pattern.<br />
#As a group activity, have a child select a fabric from the box and match it to a child wearing a similar pattern.<br />
#Enlarge the selection of patterns to include plaid, paisley, small flowers, checked, etc.<br />
#Have the child bring from home material to classify according to pattern.<br />
#Expand the patterns to include other materials. For example, patterns in corregated cardboard, metals, plastic.<br />

#Invite the child to work with the 'power of two'. <br />
#Show the child where the power of two is located on the shelf. When the child has made the selection of the material, begin with the third step after naming the material for the child. <br />
#Indicate the procedure for carrying the material: place one hand on each side of the box. <br />
#Place the box on a table or rug. Move the box to the left, and remove the lid. <br />
#Say, " I will build this cube on the lid." <br />
#Pemove the smallest yellow cube and continue the removal of the prisms from the smallest to the largest, building the first layer outside the box. <br />
#The second layer is a single green prism. To remove the prism, place the left hand over the prism and place the right hand behind the lid. With the right hand, tilt the entire box over allowing the green prism to slip into the left hand. Gently lower the right hand and close the lid on the box. <br />
#Place the large green prism on the layer built outside the box. <br />
#Rebuild the cube in the box, beginning with the large green prisms. In rebuilding the top layer in the box, select the large white prism to be placed in the top layer back. Then proceed from left to right to rebuild the top layer front, going from the largest to the smallest prism. <br />
#Return the material to the shelf in the manner described indicated in step #3.<br />
<br />
=== Control Of Error ===<br />
<br />
The prisms will fit in the box only if placed correctly.<br><br />
<br />
=== Points Of Interest ===<br />
<br />
The prisms of the same color are also of the same shape.<br><br />
<br />
=== Purpose ===<br />
<br />
*Development of the visual sense of shape. <br />
*Development of concentration, order, corrdinantion, and independence. <br />
*Development of an appreciation for beauty of form in three dimensions. <br />
*Responds to the sensitive need for order in the child. <br />
*Preparation for the mathematical concepts involved in the power of two.<br />
<br />
=== Variation ===<br />
<br />
#Proceed as in presentation 1 through step #4. Beginning with the smallest prism, place the prisms in a row from right to left. A horizontal line of prisms is then formed. Replace the prisms, beginning with the largest and proceeding to the smallest, from left to right. <br />
#Proceeding as in presentation 2. Before replacing the prisms, select the smallest prism (the yellow cube)&nbsp;and place it in front of the large yellow cube. Select the small white prism and place it in front of the large white prism. Select the small green prism and place it in front of the large green prism. Note the similarity of the prisms matched. <br />
#Proceed as in presentation 2. Slide the two small yellow cubes together. Then slide the two small yellow cubes next to the small white prisms. Note that the two yellow cubes are equivalent to the small white prism. Move the two small yellow prisms and small white prism next to the small green prism. Note the equivalence of the prisms to the green prism. Place the prisms on the small green prism and move this set of prisms to the large yellow cube. Not that this set of prisms is equivalent to the large yellow cube. Then move these prisms to the large yellow prism. Note that the set of prisms is equivalent to the large white prism. Move all these prisms next to the large green prism. Note that the set of prisms is equivalent to the large green prism. <br />
#Proceed as in presentation 2. Place the emptied box a distance away on a table or rug. Rebuild the cube inside the box, transfering the prisms one at a time into the box. <br />
#Proceed as in presentation 2. Using a blindfold, replace the prism into the box.<br />

<br />
#Invite the child to work with the 'Small hexagonal box'.<br />
#Show the child where the small hexagonal box is located on the shelf. When the child has made the selection of the material, begin witht he third step after naming the material for the child.<br />
#Indicate the procedure for carrying the material: one hand on each side of box with thumbs on the top and the fingers on the bottom.<br />
#Place the box on a rug.<br />
#Place the box in the upper left side of the rug. <br />
#Say, "I will make shapes with the triangles."<br />
#Remove the lid. Select the yellow equilateral triangle and place it to the right of the lid. <br />
#Select six Isosceles obtuse triangles, one at a time placing them in a straight line below the box. Trace the black line with the index and middle fingers. Slide the triangles together to foram a rhombus and continue until you have made three rhombi. <br />
#With two hands, make the first two rhombi point to the top of the rug. Slide the third rhombi below forming the hexagon. Slide Hexagon to the left.<br />
#Select the six grey equilateral triangles, one at a time placing them in a straight line at the bottom of the rug. Trace the black lines with the index and middle fingers. Slide the triangles to form a hexagon. <br />
#Select the three green triangles, one at a time placing them in a straight line to the right of the grey hexagon. Trace the black lines with the indeax and middle fingers. Slide the triangles together to form a trapezoid.<br />
#Select two red quilateral triangles one at a time placing them in a straight line to the right of the red hexagon. Trace the black lines with the index and middle fingers. Slide the triangles together to form a rhombus.<br />
#Replace the material into the box beginning with the red rhombus.<br />
#Return the material to the shelf in the manner indicated in #3.<br><br><br />

<hr />
<div>=== Age ===<br />
<br />
2 1/2- 4 1/2 <br><br />
<br />
=== Materials ===<br />
<br />
Wooden tray containing six wooden squares, three of which have insets: the triangle, the square, and the circle. These insets are painted blue in contrast to the natural wood finish of squares. The geometric figures contain a small knob in the center to remove the figures from the tray. <br><br />
<br />
=== Preparation ===<br />
<br />
&nbsp;<br><br />
<br />
=== Presentation ===<br />
<br />
#Invite the child to work with the 'geometry demonstration tray'. <br />
#Show the child where the geometry demonstration tray is located on the shelf. <br />
#Indicate procedure for carrying the material: a hand on each side of the tray, thumbs on top, fingers underneath. <br />
#Place the tray on a table or rug. <br />
#Say, "After I remove the insets, I will match each inset to it's frame." <br />
#Remove each figure, indicating to the child hoe each knob is to be held between the thumb, index, and middle fingers of the dominant hand. <br />
#As each figure is removed, beginning at the left and proceeding to the right, place the figures in order in front of the tray. <br />
#With the dominant hand, grasp the figure to the left by the knob. With index and middle fingers of the subdominant hand, moving clockwise, trace the edge of the figure. Select the frame in the demonstration tray that matches. Trace the frame and insert the inset. Continue until all figures have been replaced into their proper frames. <br />
#Return the material to the shelf in the manner indicated in step #3.<br />
<br />
Note: Square, circle, and triangle is the sequence of figures in the demonstration tray. <br />
<br />
=== Control Of Error ===<br />
<br />
Each inset will properly fit only in it's proper frame.<br><br />
<br />
=== Points Of Interest ===<br />
<br />
Some figures turn in their inset when rotated, some do not. Some figures can nest in the frames of other figures.<br><br />
<br />
=== Purpose ===<br />
<br />
*Development of visual discrimination of shape. <br />
*Development of concentration, coordination, and independence. <br />
*Responds to the sensitive need of order in the child. <br />
*Preparation for writing. <br />
*Preparation for geometry. <br />
*Development of tactile sense. <br />
*Introduction to plane geometry nomenclature.<br />
<br />
=== Variation ===<br />
<br />
#Mixed Order: Proceed as in Presentation 1 through step #6. Place all three insets on the rug in mixed order. Have the child replace them in proper order. <br />
#Three Period Lesson: Proceed as in Presentation 1 through step #6. Introduce names of the shapes with the Three Period Lesson. <br />
#Other Shapes: Introduce all shapes in the geometric cabinet using the demontration tray and proceeding as in Presentation 1. Select groups of three figures of highest contrast. After the sensorial experience, introduce vocabulary.<br />
