A Montessori classroom for Preschoolers has four main areas of activity; Practical Life Activities, Sensory Awareness, Language and Sound Development, Creative Play and Beginning Numeral Skills.
- Practical Life Activities are an important element in Montessori classrooms. Many of these activities isolate one particular skill, allowing pre-school children to master each skill one-step at a time.
- These life skill activities develop fine motor skills, strengthen each child’s focus and concentration, helps master eye/hand coordination through work with puzzles, beads, spooning, tweezing, scooping, pouring, etc.
- Students enhance their gross motor skills through music and creative movement.
- Children are encouraged to use their independence through taking care of their child-sized environment.
