Extension of sensorial work

To draw back some of the older children to our sensorial work, we offer extensions.  We gave a lesson with the same material but added the use of a blindfold!  This child now increased her sense of touch and by completing this work without the sense of sight and allowed her hands to do all of the work!  Most children will do the cylinder block work using only their dominant hand.  They pick up the cylinders and along with using the visual sense, replace them in the proper areas.  When this child decided to complete this work, she first began by using only her right hand.  After a bit we suggested using both hands together to help each other out.  It was fascinating to watch and many children waited for the blindfold to be put back on the shelf so they could take their turn!
