Wondering on the purpose of these blocks? They help the child in getting used to pincer grip. The pincer grip as you are aware becomes a foundation to writing at a later stage – holding pencils.
Look at them visually and you would notice the discrimination of sizes is evident. Child gets the first stage of being able to visually discriminate the dimensions and as child’s competency grows he/she would begin to differentiate it with the touch.
Cylinder blocks also play a pivotal role in understanding mathematics and language as child explores them further – height and diameter become part of the explorations.
Cylinder Blocks also called as Knobbed Cylinder is a set of 4 blocks made of teakwood.
Each of the blocks is a rectangular prism with concave faces to facilitate firm holding.
The surfaces are highly polished. Each block has 10 sockets and there are 40 knobbed cylinders that fit into these sockets. The knobs are the pencil grip type.
Block A: Varying in height from 5.5cms to 1cm, in regular intervals of 0.5cms.Diameter remains constant
Block B: Varying in diameter from 5.5cms to 1.5cm, with height remaining constant
Block C: Varying in height and thickness both increasing at regular intervals of 0.5 cms
Block D: Varying in height and thickness. But while the height increases, the diameter decreases.
