Montessori Sensorial & Colors: Before Color Tablets

Montessori Sensorial work includes lovely Color Tablets that are ideal for introducing children to the concept and names of colors.

But if your child is young enough so that he or she still prefers to bite and touch objects instead of showing an interest in handling them delicately, wait for a bit and introduce naming exercises with objects that he or she can touch and bite such as a bright red apple, a bunch of purple grapes, or the peeling of an orange tangerine.

You can prepare a bunch of purple grapes and a bunch of green grapes for your child's exploration and enjoyment to introduce the name of the fruit and the two colors.

Next, prepare three-part cards using these same fruits and vegetables!
