“Let the children be free; encourage them; let them run outside when it is raining …”
— Dr. Maria Montessori 
The objective in the Sensorial area is to aid in the development of the child’s five senses. Montessori materials are designed to help isolate a single character of each sense. Through proper use of the materials, the child will learn to recognize distinction in weights, differences in colors, and different intonations of sounds. In order to continue with subjects such as mathematics, writing, and reading, it is important for children to refine these five senses.
