First box of colour tablets – Nienhuis Montessori
The Nienhuis Montessori first box of colour tablets introduces children to the world of colour and refines the chromatic sense. Two tablets of the same primary colour can be matched, building visual discrimination skills while exploring how colours relate to one another.
The painted wooden tablets are rectangular in shape and have wooden ‘handles’ painted in white on the sides, with this contrast making it easier to distinguish colour.
Introduce colour with the tablets in a concrete fashion and without the association of a physical object to avoid confusion, “isolating one difficulty” at a time. After mastering the first box of colour tablets the child progresses to working with the second box of tablets, followed by the third, which then can be further complemented by the colour box of 32 pairs.
This material is suitable for children aged 3-6 years.
6 painted wooden tablets – a pair of each of the primary colours red, yellow and blue
