Schleich toys are a staple in Montessori classrooms. They are excellent tools for teaching a variety of subjects and skill sets. See what teachers at Trinity Montessori Academy have to say about using Schleich toys in their classrooms.

"One of our topics in the two year old Montessori classroom is often learning about Farm animals.  My students love using the Schleich farm animals when we are learning about the baby animal names, when we discuss parts of an animal, and when we  group the different animal families.  One of their favorite activities is washing dirt off of the farm animals with toothbrushes.  They are using their fine motor and coordination skills during this activity.  Schleich animals are very loved by the children in my class, it is usually the first basket they choose for imaginary play."  

---Michele Schwartz, Two Year old Teacher at Trinity Montessori Academy

"When you go into any early childhood environment you find a few standard items in every classroom; play dough, child size chairs and tables, building materials, Schleich animals, etc.  These materials are developmentally appropriate and very versatile.  In a Montessori kindergarten classroom, the Schleich animals can be used in a variety of ways in many different subject areas.  A few of my favorite ways to use animals are through science and geography.  We teach children about the concept of living vs. non-living, plants vs. animals, and cover the life cycles of several different insects and animals.  Having a three dimensional model of these animals help us provide children with a tactile learning experience, allows them to practice the mathematical concepts of sorting without even realizing it, and can be used in practical life as an object to practice cleaning with."  

---Emily Beadle, Kindergarten Teacher at Trinity Montessori Academy

"I love using Schleich animals in my toddler classroom to help children develop language skills.  It is vital when teaching toddlers new vocabulary to not only say the new word, but to let the child hold an actual object that represents that word.  In my experience, children learn animal names faster when they have actual animals to hold in their hands and associate the name to a tangible object."  

---Lynzie S., 1 to 2 year old teacher at Trinity Montessori Academy
