Pair the colourful birds with their corresponding shadows by inserting the right image into each envelope
Write a review
Birds are fascinating creatures for children because of their ability to fly. That's what makes this toy so enjoyable for them. When they pair the bird images to their respective shadows, they get curious to know that shapes are not only associated to physical objects but also to images or illustrations. This indicates that shape is an abstract property of any object. Children also learn the names of these ten birds and get interested in knowing more about them.
When children start playing with the toy, they place each bird in the slot to check which fits, which is an excellent fine motor skill as well as a daily life skill. They eventually practice abstract pairing completely taking them to the next level of geometry. This toy enhances curiosity and interest in bird names and facts. This also makes for an extremely challenging and thrilling memory-building and retention exercise.
After they learn the multidimensional and abstract properties of shape, children are tested on how well they can retain information about basic shapes while also moving from a single step process to two step processes (See How).
Set includes a partitioned high tray with handles, 10 bird cards with 10 wooden envelopes and a detailed instruction manual all packed in a beautiful Skola Doodle box.
Size of tray with the cards: 19 cm x 14 cm x 13 cm ht
Place all the bird cards randomly around. Take any one shadow board and show the child how to try out the different shapes to see which is the corresponding bird. Children love to keep trying out the various pieces until they find the right one
Once the child has played with toy enough, start introducing the names of birds in 3 stages: a. Introduction: Name clearly
b. Recognition: Ask the child to identify the bird.
c. Confirmation: Ask, “Which bird is this?”
