Practical Life Activities

Practical Life activities are the activities of everyday life which helps children gain knowledge through the real experience of how to accomplish life skills in a purposeful way. This area includes objects and materials normally seen in everyday living experiences such as cleaning, sweeping, pouring, dressing etc. The purpose and aim of Practical Life is to help the child gain control in the coordination of his movement, and help him become independent and adapt to his society.

Working with these activities also aids the growth and development of the child’s intellect and concentration and will in turn also help the child develop an orderly way of thinking. Through these exercises the child develops the self-confidence and attention essential for mastery of the other more advanced areas of the Montessori classroom.

Sensorial Activities

The sensorial area in a Montessori classroom focuses on activities that help refine the senses: seeing, hearing, touching, tasting, smelling etc. The lessons and activities offered in this area of the classroom help children clarify, classify, and explore and understand the world around them.

Children are particularly receptive to developing their senses from ages 2-6, and it is important to give children at those ages as many sensorial experiences as possible.

Language Activities

The Montessori Language Programme facilitate the acquisition of verbal language. The activities build upon skills a child has gained thus far through Sensorial materials and Practical Life activities and focuses on offering the child rich oral language experiences.

This process slowly builds the child’s confidence providing endless opportunities for the children to speak and to practice their language by perfecting their speech, articulation, vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure etc. which in turn helps him in writing and reading.
