THE PRACTICAL LIFE MATERIAL
The practical life material helps a child develop his/her concentration and autonomy. Building up confidence, nurturing self-esteem and understating the surrounding environment are all things which enable a child to gradually become independent. Getting dressed, preparing a snack, helping oneself to food and water, are all things a child will enjoy doing alone. Furthermore, all these activities strengthen and refine the child’s hand and wrist movement. At a later stage, this acquired strength of grip and control of the hand makes learning to write more accessible.
