Our toddlers have many opportunities to practice practical life skills within the classroom. Practical life activities in Montessori are purposeful activity, developing motor control and coordination, and developing independence, concentration, and a sense of responsibility. All of September, we are studying apples, how they grow, their colors, and varieties. We are cooking with apples too! This week, we made applesauce and Apple Cheddar Crepes! Children sliced, stirred, measured, and mixed ingredients.
