FUELING THE NATURAL DESIRE OF LEARNING
Handwork helps intellectual development, creating the base for abstraction. At the beginning the exploration of geometry is all sensorial: already from the age of three the child has the opportunity to acquire an intuitive knowledge of plane and solid geometry through the work with various materials. Already at the age of six, the child acquires the knowledge that will allow him or her to approach a deeper study of geometry as a natural continuation of the work with sensorial materials. The new materials will lead the child gradually towards abstraction, which would be much more difficult without handwork. Moreover, each material allows the child to work in a personal and creative way, satisfying its natural curiosity and the motivation to learn that is characteristic of all children.
