About SMMS Curriculum Sensorial
Sensorial

These are exercises in perception, observation, fine discrimination, and classification that play a major role in helping our children to develop their sense of logic and concentration. They begin at age three and lay the foundation for later work in science, geography, sociology, music, art and other areas where skills in observation, sorting, patterning and classification are important.

  • Discrimination of length, width, and height
  • Discrimination of volume
  • Discrimination among color tones
  • Discrimination among geometric shapes for shape and relative size
  • Discrimination among solid geometric shapes by sight and touch
  • Discrimination of texture by touch
  • Discrimination of weight by touch
  • Discrimination of temperature by touch
  • Discrimination of scents

In the older students, this work leads to such exercises as:

  • Precise observation of the natural world
  • Culinary discrimination
