Practical: means basic, useful, purposeful Life: means the way of living. Practical life Exercises are just that, they are Exercises so the child can learn how to do living activities in a purposeful way. The purpose and aim of Practical Life is to help the child gain control in the coordination of his movement, and help the child to gain independence and adapt to his society. It is therefore important to “Teach teaching, not correcting” (Montessori) in order to allow the child to be a fully functionional member in hios own society. Practical Life Exercises also aid 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. Practical Life Exercises can be categorized into four different groups: Preliminary Applications, Applied Applications, Grace and Courtesy, and Control of Moment.

The Montessori Goldmine First, let me thank everyone who has been in touch, we are all OK and I am updating the other blog if you want to know what is going on. Well, I can't just sit here and do nothing, there is so much devastation, the death toll is continuing to get higher and just looking at the images it is obvious that there will be a lot of clean up ahead. So, I have decided to run an auction and would be honoured if you could get involved. I am planning to run it in the same way as the QLD flood appeal auction with each blogger holding an auction or raffle on their own blog. You can donate or give whatever you like, Montessori files or something you make or something you have bought but please choose something that you are willing to post worldwide. The money will be donated to Global Giving once you have donated you will be sent a receipt number this will act as your raffle number, for those who win an auction you will need to send proof of donation to the person whom win from.
