MONTESSORI'S PRACTICAL LIFE IS THE AREA OF GETTING INDEPENDENCE , GAINING CONTROL Of THE ENVIRONMENT and a properly  Developed FINE-MOTOR Skill.

These girls are cleaning the window of the classroom, they discovered that window needed some cleaning, so thye got the water spray, some dusters to start the activity...it took them about 15- 20 minutes to finish the simple activity...Montessori system allows the child to grow in his / her own pace, it never ask for quick fixes,which is the core system nowadays and which is robbing children of their creativity and peaceful mind.
 
 not only they are learning the daily life skills and getting the Independence but theyr getting the messeges of team work and co operating.

Spooning is an activity kids not only enjoy but they keep doing it until some perfection is reached, so who are we to test children about how much they know, they know it beter than us...we can only estimate while they are in  aposition to dominate.
