Exercise of Practical Life
The child is introduced initially to practical life as he/she is familiar with most of the materials at home but has not laid his/her hands over them. This attracts them to the activities that give them independence and control of their own life. This basically helps him/her to care for himself/herself and take care of his/her environment; helps him/her with his/her eye-hand co-ordination, and with his/her social behavior. The most important need of the young child is to develop his/her muscles and co-ordinate his/her movement through such practical life exercises. Special Montessori materials enable him/her to tie, button, snap and use many other fastening devices. The purpose of these exercises is to develop concentration and to pay attention to detail as the child follows a regular sequence of actions and to learn good working habits. These activities provide the very foundation on which the child approaches more intricate academic exercises .
One aspect of the Montessori Method taught at all Montessori schools, is the Sensorial exercises. Sensorial Materials in the Montessori classroom are designed to sharpen the senses of the young child and enable the child to understand the many impressions he/she receives through them. Each of the Sensorial Materials isolates one defining quality such as color, weight, shape, texture, size, distance, speed, sound or smell. The Montessori Sensorial Materials help the child to distinguish, to categorize, and to relate new information to what he/she already knows.
