Sensorial activities are directed to enhance chidren use of their five senses, touch, vision, hear, taste, and smell. These activites are favored by children because they interact with geomatirc objects that lend themselves to creativity while at the same time each activity is in fact constructed around scientific and spacial concepts that are and will be very important in their brain growth, development and future learning.
Practical Life is the term Montessori use to describe all activities that are applicable in real life and help the child become independant at early age. These activites enhance and improve children gross and fine motor skills with a focus on strengthening their pencil grip. from cutting fruit, pouring liquid, picking with two fingers or with tweezers, to buttoning, and lacing, kids enjoy these activities the most because they are rewarding and confidence-enhancing. Kids who complete and master all Practicial Life activities in the Montessori Curriculum develop an “I can do that” perosnallity rather than an “I need help” personnality; and they grow to become leaders of their freinds, and when at home, they aer mom and dad helpers :).
