|Welcome to Montessori Album! We've been online for over ten years (yay!), but unfortunately we've had a lot of spam accounts over time. We didn't have a good way of sorting them out...so took the extreme measure of wiping everything before November 2019.|
We're so sorry! We've setup measures to prevent such drastic action again. Please recreate your account if it doesn't work.

- Take out one of the objects from the bag and feel it.
- Name the object for the child if they don't know what it is called.
- Give the object to the child to feel.
- Set the object on the mat.
- Repeat with the other objects in the bag until they have all been taken out and placed on the mat.
- Put the objects back into the bag.
- Reach in with both hands and feel one of the objects.
"I feel a ..." and name the object.
- Take out the object to show that you were right. Set the object on the mat.

- Put the objects back inside the bag.
- Give the child a turn.
