I wanted to share an activity that we love doing at our daycare center. I hand drew this up after not finding creative montessori manipulatives in the stores that satisfied my goals. This is our "SORTING QUILT BLOCKS SET" work for our CREATIVE MONTESSORI TRAYS. The way I designed these materials are to sort the props around the edges into the correct colored sorting quilt patch.
1.) This sparks my children's imaginations by having a catchy label and interesting props.
2.) This activity is open ended there for working in their chosen order of props to mat colors.
3.) Builds self esteem since this is child directed and they control which props they pick up n sort.
4.) We also add a dish or basket to pull from to contain the props, child's choice from shelf containers.
STORAGE: I store my sets in ziplock bags and clip them onto pant hangers that have a strip of cardboard attached. Easy to get out and easy to keep together.
