Love Montessori Colour Tablets! (Box Three with Extensions)

Colour Box 3

The Colour Tablets are sensorial materials found in the Montessori 3-6 classroom. They assist with visual discrimination and perception of colours. They come in three boxes, Box One, Box Two and Box Three. The child moves progressively through the boxes starting with Box One. Box Three (as pictured) contains 63 colour tablets in seven graded shades of nine colours. I needed a bit of colour in my life today and these images are too beautiful not to share. Here are a few examples of the Colour Tablets, Box Three being used and a few extension ideas!
