Why won't Adaora eat her slice of paw-paw? She says she doesn't want to spoil the star shape in the middle - so her cousin Ugo offers to find her a triangle instead. As they walk along they see all kinds of shapes, from Uncle Eze wearing his rectangular agbada to musicians playing circle-topped elephant drums, from plants with heart-shaped leaves to a crescent-shaped plantain. And just when Adaora is too tired to look any more, they find a triangle - and a treat from Aunt Felicia! Ifeoma Onyefulu introduces children to shapes, African style, with warm words and photographs offering a colourful glimpse into Nigerian village life.

Technically, we refer to this category as the “visual discrimination of form,” but that seemed awfully stuffy for a book review blog post. Essentially, it’s helping a child to visually notice the differences in objects, forms, etc. Later, we’ll add other ways to distinguish differences, such as by taste, touch and smell, but at this point we’re focusing on the visual sense.

As you can tell from the chart above, I’ve broken down the “visual sense” into the three main Montessori-defined categories (as I learned them in my AMS-training). For a review on how the Sensorial work fits into a Montessori 3-6 classroom, check out my post here . You can also find book reviews on color – for beginners and more advanced youngsters .

My local library didn’t have the following book -and I have far exceeded my ILL requests for the year- but Shapes in Buildings looks as if it would blend in nicely to a reality-based way of learning.
