Wonderful new sensations surround the children continually. The sensorial materials activate a child's absorption of these new impressions. They enable categorization and organization of the unfamiliar with the familiar. Each piece of material isolates one definite quality of a sense - color, size, weight, shape, texture, or sound. Each piece of material stimulates extensive vocabulary building. The sensorial basis is present in many of the academically-oriented materials.
The importance of the sensorial development cannot be overstated. When a child develops his senses, he not only develops himself but he forms his learning tools.
