  Montessori Practical life exercises reflect many of the everyday tasks children see as part of the daily routine in their homes. Students learn to work on an activity from beginning to end, thus developing their powers of concentration and control. 

Examples of the Montessori approach to practical life are:

  • Care and Respect of Self: Clothing management, which includes buttoning, buckling, zippering, shoe tying, and personal hygiene, such as, hand washing and good nutritional practices.
  • Care and Respect of the Environment: Pouring, sweeping, table setting, dishwashing.
  • Grace and Courtesy: Please, thank you, greeting of visitors.
  • Elementary movement: Carrying of chairs, trays, walking properly.
