Practical Life

slide_21 generalinfo

Practical Life is the cornerstone of the environment. These lessons are presented first to the child to form a foundation for the other areas of the environment. Practical life exercises are the child’s introduction to the prepared environment of the Montessori classroom designed for children 2 ½ years to 6 years old. A child in this setting will continually be involved with some element of Practical Life. The child will be presented exercises in four areas – care of the environment, such as washing a table; care of the person, such as dressing frames; social relations, offered as grace and courtesy lessons; and analysis and control of movement, such as walking on the line. Through these exercises children are given the skills to function independently. They build their concentration through repetition of the work until they reach a state of perfection and satisfaction, which develops the children’s self-confidence. They also develop eye-hand coordination which in future helps them in writing
