Our platform has two sides – one you will notice immediately, the other one will surprise you after a while. On the one hand, it resembles a flying carpet, because you can swing and balance on it – it’s a lot of fun and a fantastic way to develop gross motor skills. On the other hand, the platform is a graphomotor board, thanks to which preparation for learning to write becomes a beautiful adventure – a game of imagination and discovering the world with all senses (i.e. polysensorically). Before a toddler starts drawing lines or putting the first letters, he has to develop fine motor skills – learn to use his hand and fingers. This is what playing with the platform is for – by running a finger, stylus or brush over the shapes carved on it, the child exercises precision and prepares his hand for writing. For fun, you can use natural fragrant materials (cloves, cinnamon, anise), which will additionally stimulate other senses – a toddler equipped with a brush will feel like an archaeologist discovering ancient hieroglyphs. If you additionally include music introducing the atmosphere (e.g. oriental and a bit fairy-tale), all senses will be involved in learning to write. This is the essence of polysensory teaching, the precursor of which was Maria Montessori.
What else? As befits Good Wood, we took care of a nice, modern design and ecological, friendly materials. Nothing but have fun!
