50 wooden coloured blocks of different shapes and sizes to build fascinating structures.
This toy happens to be one of the most creative toys that children of all ages can enjoy. These colourful, wooden blocks grab their attention, making children imaginative as well as logical while building different shapes and objects. The tray doubles up as a base where children have to place a 3D shape only on its corresponding 2D slot. This is one of the highest forms of partial pairing in geometry.
Set of 50 wooden blocks of various shapes arranged in a wooden tray and packed in an elegant printed Skola Doodle Box. Comes with a detailed instruction manual.
Size of the packed wooden tray : 29.5 cm x 26 cm x 4 cm height
By applying their knowledge of shapes, children get a better understanding of how shapes can have multiple dimensions and numeral values associated with them (See How).
Children learn to correlate 3D objects with their 2D counterparts and realise each side of a 3D object is in fact 2D, reinforcing partial pairing. This becomes an excellent memory exercise that also boosts their creative abilities of building whatever they wish to imagine with the blocks. Constructing with different shapes to form new shapes, sorting, classifying and pairing enhances children's understanding of geometry and creativity. Constructing with wooden blocks of varying geometric shapes, is fantastic for developing fine motor skills.
Take some of the pieces and introduce names one by one in 3 stages
a. Introduction: Name clearly
b. Recognition: Ask the child to identify (eg. - "Which is a Cylinder?")
c. Confirmation: Ask the child, “What is this?” (eg. - the child answers “Cylinder”)
Once the child is familiar with 2D-3D translation, memory games can be played. Place the blocks on a tray in another room. Place an indicator on any one shape on the base. The child has to remember the 2D shape and bring the corresponding 3D piece from the other room.This activity greatly enhances association of3D-2D shapes
