NAMC Homeschool Sensorial Manual

Sensorial Manual

The Sensorial curriculum focuses on the development and refinement of your child’s senses. The activities and materials in the Sensorial curriculum help your child develop recognition of differences in color, brightness, depth, loudness, tone, texture, and all of the other sensory differences that humans experience. The Sensorial curriculum also includes a music component that introduces your child to different musical instruments – and even encourages your child to make his/her own! Also explored in this section are the concepts of rhythm and silence. As your child works on the Sensorial activities, he/she also learns to think, judge, associate, and compare – and this supports the development of his/her abstract thinking, preparing him/her for future work in math and language arts.
