The purpose of Sensorial work is for the child to acquire
clear, conscious, information and to be able to then make
classifications in his environment. Montessori believed that
sensorial experiences began at birth. Through his senses,
the child studies his environment.
Through work with the sensorial materials, the child
is given the keys to classifying the things around him,
which leads to the child making his own experiences in
of the exercises in this area are also indirect preparations
for later mathematics and language work as they enable the child to order,
seriate and describe sensory impressions in relation to length, width, temperature,
mass and colour.
