Practical Life in the classroom is as important as reading and mathematics. The idea behind Practical Life is that children need exposure and experience with everyday life skills. Many of these activities help the child to develop fine motor skills. These works help the child connect to the world around them. A large part of these works help the child feel an attachment to the classroom through their organization and cleanliness. Job boards assign their job to help the community and their work environment. In this Webinar you will see ideas for shelf work, integration of the curriculum, and ways to teach independence in the Practical Life area.
