The Beads Sequencing Set is an educational toy with the purpose of showing the child how to implement the many different pattern ideas the game proposes and at the same time allow him to create new ones on his own! This Montessori material also helps develop the child’s fine motor skills, especially the use of his gripper fingers as he threads the beads into the sticks. And not just that, it also enhances his hand-eye coordination. This wooden toy has it all! It is perfect for younger children to fine their hand’s movements as they grip and introduce the beads through the stick. It is a toy that favors the child’s concentration and imagination as well, as he becomes the creator of his own patterns, too! The Beads Sequencing Set is a fun toy to play with and learn as well since the child is supposed to interpret the patterns given and follow them through. The Beads Sequencing Set also proposes different uses such as ‘matching games’ whether it be the same colored beads, the same shaped beads or the same size beads to thread. Playing with it with his friends will also encourage sharing and exchanging pattern ideas. As he plays along he will discover the meaning of patterns and be able to recognize and apply them in other aspects of his daily life. Just like Dr. Montessori explained, each material should have a purpose to help the child in his everyday life.
