Exercises of Practical Life

 

Here we have items of everyday use that the child comes across in his day-to-day life. These include pouring, dusting, polishing, sweeping etc. Here in the Children’s House we have taken great effort to keep materials that are physically as well as psychically proportionate so that the child can work with the material on his own, feel like a part of his society, strengthen his co-ordination and also lengthen his attention span. The child learns to pay attention to detail and follows a sequence of movements; therefore Exercises of Practical Life indirectly prepares his hand for writing and his mind indirectly for mathematics and logical thinking.
