Red Rod variations are what make this Sensorial work so enticing. One of our Primary Leads got creative this holiday season, and incorporated festive ribbon as a part of the work, allowing children to match the lengths of the ribbon to the different lengths of the red rods. One particular friend was so excited to show me his work!
Our primary community used their imagination and creativity by creating different extensions from the blue and red number rods, red rods, and the knobless cylinders. Activities like this help the child learn to discriminate objects by length, height, and diameter. It trains the eye to perceive fine differences in dimensions.
