The children are given experience with materials to understand the qualities and given vocabulary. All the information and impressions are given in a classified and orderly manner to the children. The children understand that everything around them has shape, size, colour, texture, name and they begin to connect to the world. The children use this knowledge they gained to make informative choices, knowledgeable and conscious decisions. They appreciate nature and begin to enjoy the simpler meaningful aspects of life. These activities help the children to layer information in other areas. Most of the math concepts are given with the help of materials in this area.
The children at this age group are sensorial learners, they learn through their senses. The materials designed will focus on qualities. The children work with materials and understand the concepts and later the concepts are abstracted.
