The practical life exercises are the beginning activities for two to four year old children. These exercises improve motor control, eye hand coordination and concentration. The practical life exercises include environment care, pouring, polishing, washing, and serving. Children love these Practical Life Exercises and are also taught good work habits by being encouraged to complete the whole task, see that all materials needed are arranged in order, and make sure the entire exercise is available for use by the next child.
Teaching the children to be thoughtful of the rights of other children, they are prepared for a sucessful citizenship and career. The practical life activities contribute invaluably to the development of the whole person with inner discipline, self direction and a high degree of concentration.
