The metal insets – Nienhuis Montessori
The metal insets are part of the Montessori language materials and are a direct preparation for writing. Use of this material strengthens the pincer grip and coordinates the necessary wrist movement for writing. This exercise also advances proficiency in lightness of touch and evenness of pressure through drawing activities. The metal insets invite unlimited geometric design possibilities. By completing the figures, the child repeats the movement required for writing and handling the writing tool. When colouring and combining the figures, the feeling for colour combinations and surface division is stimulated.
Metal insets stands to lay the metal insets on are also sold separately.
This material is suitable for children aged 3-6 years.
10 blue metal insets cut-outs with small knobs for easy grip and 10 red matching moulds
