Practical Life:

The practical life exercises fulfill the child's plea: "Help me do it myself" Through exercises such as scrubbing, polishing, and cutting, children gain confidence and mastery of the environment. The young child uses practical life materials in order to develop his hand-eye coordination and fine motor hand skill. These skills establish concentration, order, coordination and independence which provide the foundation for academic learning.

*Food Preparation: When children begin to internalize the practical life skill, it is natural for them to seek work levels that use these skills and that contain broader responsibilities. The children can prepare individual snacks and prepare and serve snacks to their classmates.
