It was a wonderful afternoon when Nermeen decided to go to the woods area inside their Residential compound. when we were heading towards that area, she shouted, "what's that ? looks like an amazing place".
Soon we entered the Construction site where some new construction has started. Nermeen and her friends were delighted to see many tools lying here and there. So they grabbed a Wheelbarrow
Now it's time for her Spanish friend Giamo to take over the wheelbarrow, and he learned something different focusing on how to hold it in a manner when applying speed. (the boy's way of learning).
Her friend was little reluctant to try, but Nermeen convinced her to give a quick try.
And then she was just enjoying the moves and the excitement of handling such a big stuff.
Children are always curious to know why things happen? what's the cause and effect relationship? how it can be done? and when they are through, they feel the sense of achievement which inspires their souls ,brighten their neural connections and finally leads them towards more Exploration.
While they were exploring the environment, this boy found a Spade ,I just showed him the way to hold it in a correct manner, then he was doing things on his own, discovering the use of this specific tool and enjoying every bit of
Because, she couldn't see holes clearly which started appearing on the soil, she brought the spade ,leveled the soil and then tried the rod again only to discover the amazing 'holes'.
A child feel curious and excited at the same time when he discovers the relationship between what is being done and what is coming out of that process of 'doing'.
They decided that one child would be leveling the soil with the hand while the other would make the holes.
(Repetition matters in these Early years)
In the words of Montessori ,“Since the child now learns to move rather than to sit still, .... it is
the repetition of the activity that the child will gain mastery and learn the concept".
And it goes on.
