Once two different tables or mats have been placed at a distance from one another, place one of a pair of materials, one on each mat/table. The directress then selects one of the pairs, experiences it and allows the child to experience it, and then have the child fetch the match from the other mat/table. Repeat this until all of the matches have been matched. Once two tables or mats have been placed at a distance from one another, place the grading materials at random on one of the mats/tables. Pick up one of the extremes (for example the largest cube in the Pink Tower), and place it on the other mat/table. Then have the child bring over to the second mat, the next size up. Work you way up to the smallest cube. Once two tables or mats have been placed at a distance from one another, place the grading materials at random on one of the mats/tables. Pick up one of the pieces near the middle (for example one of the middle sized cubes in the Pink Tower), and place it on the other mat/table. Then have the child bring to the other mat the next size up or down. NOTE: For this game, the child must have had language. This game is to be done in a group. The directress would have the children sit in a circle around a mat. She would then hand out the material (for example one cube of the Pink Tower to each child). The children hold the cube behind their backs and feel them. The directress would then ask for the largest cube to be placed on the mat. By feeling their cube, the children are being asked to feel for the recognition of the sizes of the cubes. Continue asking for certain cubes working your way from the biggest cube to the smallest cube, until all the cubes have been placed on the mat.
After a mat has been rolled out, place the color tablets onto the mat at random. The directress can point to one of the colors/shades and ask the child to find something in the environment of that same color or shade. Repeat for all of the colors or all of the shades of color.
