If you have one or more of the traditional Montessori sensorial materials, you undoubtedly want to encourage the best possible use of the material. Extensions can create more interest as well as add a new level of difficulty for your child or students who need a more advanced activity.

Some of the most likely sensorial materials to be purchased are the Montessori size materials: the cylinder blocks, knobless cylinders, pink tower, brown stair, and red rods.

Some Examples of Sensorial Size Extensions:

Inspired Montessori has lots of photos of extensions of pink tower, brown stair, and knobless cylinders from years of teaching in a Montessori school.
