The building of character and the formation of personality that we call normalization come about when children follow this cycle of activity. With this said however, the child will receive no new experiences through the use of the material.
This reinforce the benefits of the cycle of activty. Martha Pierson of Baylor College of Medicine told us that children need a feast for the mind, a banquet of sensory information to feed the senses.
In the Visual Sense Exercises, the child learns how to visually discriminate differences between similar objects and differing objects. This child is not given every color in the world, but only a select few.
In fact, it was Seguin who first followed the scientific method of teaching which was later adopted by Dr. Yet, the information at this point is a sea of impressions in the unconscious mind. Stereognostic uses full arm movement and the entire hand.
In the s, eminent brain researchers like Dr. 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 his environment. The purpose and aim of Sensorial education in the Montessori method is for the child to acquire clear, conscious information and to be able to then make classifications in his environment or to categorize.
The language centers of the brain are simply unable to attain full maturity without ample stimulation. All include a self-evident control of error. For example, the Montessori bells are used for auditory discrimination, but also later can be used for musical interest.
This allows the child who is working with the material to finish through the entire piece of work without having to stop and find a missing piece. The more a child was able to complete his own work cycles, the happier, more self-disciplined and self-motivated he became.

What became apparent was that this period was critical as a build up to the higher level work that was to follow. This allows the child to focus on that one quality.
Sensory activities facilitate whole brain learning and children will be more successful academically and practically.
This is the beginning of sensorial education. Her Life and Work. Impressions are feelings and not an intellectual building block.
But after a few minutes he undertakes some much more difficult work, and becomes so deeply absorbed in this that he shows us that he has reached the acme of his activity When the teacher sees that the child understands she can repeat the question a number of times to confirm the relationship and fix it in his mind.

The child, to Montessori, is a “sensorial explorer”. 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 his environment. Montessori Philosophy & Sensorial Introduction.
