The wooden color and shape sorter is a set consisting of a colorful base and 36 matching circles. The wheels are designed in such a way that one side of them is used for learning and sorting colors, and the other for learning and sorting shapes.

Distinguishing and naming colors and shapes is the initial stage of toddlers’ education, giving them much joy and satisfaction. In addition, our sorter is an ideal training for the little hand and a great tool that supports the development of important skills for the child.

Complementing the sorting set are 6 play suggestions. The developed scenarios include games dedicated to the youngest children to help them remember the names of colors and shapes. Older preschoolers are offered numeracy, classification training, left-hemisphere puzzles and sequences. These games stimulate the left hemisphere of the brain, which is responsible for, among other things. For speech, reading and writing.

 

The color and shape sorter mainly supports: concentration, visual perception, eye-hand coordination, fine motor skills, logical thinking and speech and communication. Did you know that:
  1. Concentration is the ability to focus on something specific. It can be a task being performed, a particular object or instructions given by a teacher. Concentration ensures children’s proper development and is essential at each stage of their education.
  2. Visual perception allows a child to know and understand the world around him, and is essential for further education when learning to read, write and count. At first, the child, playing with several pieces with different pictures, has to focus his eyes on them and make judgments about what he sees, such as colors, shapes, similarities and differences. This is an introduction to more advanced analysis, which, among other things, forms the basis for logical thinking.
  3. Eye-hand coordination makes it possible to achieve precision of movements, and is essential for everyday activities – from eating, dressing, drawing or writing independently to physical activity. Eye-hand coordination additionally requires training of the child’s hands and fingers, i.e. fine motor skills.
  4. Small motor skills are the precise movements of the hands and fingers, such as squeezing, stroking, kneading and grasping. It is essential in many areas of a child’s life and the achievement of independence (e.g. brushing teeth, buttoning up, eating, writing).
  5. Logical thinking allows one to analyze situations, draw conclusions and develop possible solutions based on the information gathered. This is one skill that can be difficult for a child to achieve. Why practice logical thinking? Because it is essential at every stage of our lives.
  6. Speech and effective communication are the basis of everyday life in the family and are indispensable for the development of social skills. They allow children to express their thoughts and feelings and to understand what others want to communicate.

 

Fun proposal

Colorful train of shapes, or left hemisphere puzzles – number of players: 2, suggested age: 3+

The goal of the game is for the child to reproduce a series of shapes and colors that has been arranged by the caregiver. Choose the shapes and colors you will arrange, you will need pairs – one picture gets a child, the other an adult. Arrange the pattern for the child to repeat, which is circles in a horizontal row. The reproduced train, full of colors and shapes, is to be found underneath.

Tips:

  • The level of difficulty of the game is modified by increasing the number of elements used; for the youngest children (2 years old) use 2 colored disks, 3-4 years old let them start their adventure with mapping the order of 2-4 elements;
  • increase the number of circles gradually as the child masters arranging rows from fewer pieces;
  • Make sure that the child mimics the order always from left to right and that he or she arranges the disks in sequence, not randomly;
  • Advanced toddlers can be offered to map the order of colors arranged in several rows; keep an eye on the child to arrange the rows from top to bottom, left to right;
  • Advanced and older children can be offered mapping the order of shapes; choose the colors you will use, one set of shapes (e.g., purple) gets the adult, and the other set of shapes (e.g., green) gets the child; the adult arranges his shapes in a certain order, and the child is to reproduce this order, using the shapes of his color; in this variant, up to 6 people can play – each will use his color.
