Montessori tools for 2 years above
Dah agak lama juga rasanya tak bercerita perihal nursery SN. I ada terima comment dari MaMa iRis  yang menyatakan dia tengah cari toys yang sesuai utk anak-anak especially yang bagus untuk hand eyes motor/coordination skill lepas dia baca entry SN's Montessori activities at home.

Masa pergi nursery SN last month, I sempat ambik gambar lagi few montessori tools yang sesuai untuk baby/toddler from 1 - 2 years. So, I nak share kat entry hari ini lah pasal few Montessori tools/toys yang sesuai untuk todler from 2 years above, dan mana lah tahu ada di antara tools ini boleh di sediakan untuk anak-anak bermain sambil belajar di rumah.

Enjoy the piccas.

(1) Color tablets 


• Top pic : 63 tablets representing 9 colors in seven graded shades of red, blue, yellow, green, purple, orange, brown, pink and grey in a wooden box. Each tablet has wooden frames to facilitate handling
• Bottom pic : 11 pairs of the colors: red, yellow, blue, orange, green, purple, brown, pink, grey, black and white in a wooden box. Each tablet has wooden frames to facilitate handling

(2) Pink Tower 

• 10 wooden cubes painted pink and width graduated in increments from 1 cm to 10 cm.
• The pink tower is used as a stacking activity when children are very young. As they move into Montessori elementary, they discover that the pink tower represents the cubes of numbers from one to ten.

(3) Long Red Wooden Rods
+- pic source: here -+ 

• 10 solid long red wooden rods that are constant in height and width (2.5cm) while graduated in length from 10cm to 1 metre.
• 10 rods that are all the same diameter but vary in length by a decimeter, each from one decimeter to a meter. 
• These rods are the most advanced Montessori tools designed for use when teaching preschoolers about dimension. 
• They should be introduced when a child appears reasonably comfortable with all stages of the cylinder blocks, pink tower and broad stair lessons.

 (4) Tray of Puzzles

• contains numbers of wooden puzzles based on shapes, botany, insects, leaf puzzles and many more
• The geometric demonstration tray contains insets and frames for the three basic geometric shapes: circle, square and triangle and three blank wooden squares. Demonstration tray is used with the cabinet to introduced plain geometric shapes in isolation.

(5) Cylinder Blocks

• Set of 4 blocks with cylinders varying in height and/or diameter in each block. Made of satinwood. 
• To help develop the child's visual discrimination of size. Indirectly, to prepare the child for writing, through the handling of the cylinders by their knobs. 
• Indirectly, to prepare the child for later work in Mathematics, through observation of the regular differences in the cylinders.

(6) Geometric Solids With Stands, Bases, and Box

• A large wooden box containing a cylinder, cube, ellipsoid, cone, sphere, square-based pyramid, triangular-based pyramid, ovoid, rectangular prism and triangular prism painted in glossy blue. 
• The box includes five wooden plane figures and three wooden stands for the curved solids. 

(7) Metal Insets Only - Pink


• 10 metal insets. Insets are in blue color while frames are in pink color. 
• To help the child acquire proficiency in using a writing instrument, including lightness of touch, evenness of pressure, continuity in line, and familiarity with the curves and angles found in letters.
• The metal insets consist of five curved-line figures and five straight-line figures: pentagon , oval, curvilinear triangle, square, triangle, rectangle, ellipse, circle, quatrefoil, and trapezoid. 

(8) Thermic Tablets

A wooden box with six compartments containing two tablets each of six different materials. 
• The materials, when touched, provide different sensations of temperature. 
• This material is used to stimulate the child's ability to discriminate thermic qualities.
• To cultivate the ability to discriminate slight differences in temperature 

(9) Different textures  

• I've made this on my own, containing 3 pairs of different textures using sandpapers, denim fabrics and bubbles sheet. 
• This material is used to stimulate the child's ability to discriminate textures gradients. 

(10)  Bead Sorting, Counting and Stringing Beads 


• A simple activity to reinforce the understanding of counting, recognizing numbers and number representation. 
Counting: Practicing counting how many of one color.  
Represent (How many is two,three, etc?): Ask your child to give you two beads. 
Quantity (More, Less, Equal): Make two piles and ask which one has more or less.
Simple Patterns: Laying beads out in a row in simple patterns and identifying the shape of the beads.


Sorting Objects by Attribute (color, size or shape): Sorting by color in 3 different bowls

(11 ) Transferring activity set

• Seashell transfer using small kitchen clamp

• Cotton balls transfer using chopsticks
• Strengthens the small muscles of the fingers and hands and coordinates eye-hand movements.

(12 ) Pouring activity set

• soybeans pouring from one mug to another mug
• Strengthens hands and coordinates eye-hand movements. 
• Increase interest in the children to help doing some cooking chores

(13) Spooning activity set


• small beads are spooned using teaspoon
• Strengthens the small muscles of the fingers and hands and coordinates eye-hand movements. 

(14) Dressing Frames

•  6 frames of lacing dressing frames, shoe lacing, ribbon type dressing, medium buttons dressing, safety pin dressing and zipping frames.

(15) Felt dressing animals


 • Teach children about animals and at the same time teach them how to dress up on their own (buttons and Velcro tape)
• yang ni pun sennag je kalaunak buat sendiri kat rumah, beli kain felt dan jahit button..siap!

(16) Glue activity

• Take pinking shears and cut all sorts of different shapes (triangles, squares, rectangles, etc) out of construction paper or even old catalogs. 
• Toddlers will enjoy selecting shapes to glue onto their paper.

(17) Walking on a Loop Line on the floor


• Children will walk on the line to help eye-leg coordination as well as learning about line. Indirectly teach them to follow the correct lane while walking.
• Senang je nak buat sendiri kat rumah, lekat je salotape atas lantai..beres!.

 ~ All of these Montessori tools listed above covered important aspects in early childhood education such as LANGUAGE, MATHEMATICAL, PRACTICAL, ART, SENSORIAL, BOTANICAL and GEOGRAPHY TOOLS. ~

Amacam lenguh tak tangan nak scroll sampai bawah untuk tengok gambar2 tu semua?. Macam biasalah kalau entry pasal nursery SN memang banyak di hiasi gambar-gambar dan entry memang panjang berjela-jela sebab I sedaya upaya nak abadikan segala ilmu yang I dapat kutip dari nursery SN tentang Montessori; sebagai persediaan untuk buka Nursery Montessori sendiri bila I dah balik Malaysia for good nanti *Insya Allah*. 

Plus, I rasa seronok bila ada parents kat Malaysia yang berminat jugak dengan Montessori education ni, so I share lah ilmu setakat yang I tau, moga-moga ilmu itu memberi manfaat buat orang yang membaca entry ini.

 +- teringin nak ada rak Montessori macam ni jugak untuk SN -+

I hope you get some ideas to make your own Montessori tools at home for your child. Sebelum ini I pernah share kat entry SN's Montessori activities at home. Also, if you want to see video on guides to make Montessori materials, check it out here . Good luck!.
