Practical Life Exercises

Dr. Maria Montessori placed great value on the practical life exercises, referring to them as the "gymnasium for perfecting one's action".

Practical life activities are the first to engage the child's interest and these materials provide appropriate motives for movement.

The exercises not only refine skills but also form the foundation of character. The experiences in practical life are crucial for building a firm foundation for future learning. Before children can master language and math skills, they need solid work habits and strong inner sense. Practical life activities are the vehicle to build this.

The curriculum emphasizes exercises that establish the order, coordination, concentration and independence necessary to the child's motor and intellectual development.

Sensorial Curriculum

Dr. Montessori found that children's best learning takes place through their senses and through their physical activity within their environment. She noticed that the young child's mind is like a sponge soaking up all aspects of the environment. She called this the "absorbent mind".

The sensorial materials allow children to focus their attention more carefully on the physical world, exploring each of their senses and the subtle variation in the properties of different objects. Children learn how to taste, smell and hear what they are experiencing with a much deeper awareness and appreciation. A child is an active learner. He learns everything without knowing he is learning it, and in doing so he passes information little by little from the unconscious to the conscious state.

Dr. Montessori recognizes that the formation of language in the young child id directed by inner sensitivities. The internal sensitivities are key elements in language development and must be respected and served by the adult not hindered, blocked, ignored or repressed.

Facilitating language development is an integral part of Montessori teacher training. The curriculum emphasizes spoken language. Throughout the curriculum, a child hears and uses precise vocabulary for all the activities.

Although language is considered to be one of the four basic curriculum areas in a Montessori class, it spans every other areas, it is an integral part of each curriculum area as well as a special area in and of itself.

The children are indirectly prepared for writing and reading with the practical life and sensorial materials. The materials for written language first introduce the child to the beautiful twenty six letters of the alphabet through their sounds.

These are the sandpaper letters, where a child not only sounds out the symbol but also feels it. Later the muscles of his hand will remember the tracing motion as he/she writes the letter. At this stage, children are fascinated with the relationship between the letters that form words.

The children learn gradually to form words, then sentences, and even analysis of sentences and grammar. In the Montessori Method, writing and reading is thus acquired spontaneously.

Math Curriculum

According to Dr. Montessori, preschool children naturally have a mathematical mind. They have the capacity to reason, estimate and to calculate. They are tremendously attracted towards quantity. The materials allow the children to learn the mathematical concepts irrespective of the medium of instruction.

The child do not merely count, they understand the concept of "hoe many" because they hold the amount in their hands. Likewise, the children are able to perform the operation of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division using concrete materials.
