Practical life

The Practical Life Learning area aims to practice independence and form creativity, including self-care activities, environmental care, and behavior lessons:

  • Know how to express emotions through facial expressions and gestures, express what they like and dislike
  • Take care of the environment: sweep the house, plant trees, know how to show friendliness with some close animals
  • Polite and courteous: learn manners and social interactions with basic skills: practice wiping mouth, covering mouth when sneezing….
  • Motion control: Grip tools with greater control, perform hand-eye coordination

To develop senses and motor skills, the sensorial corner includes specially designed lessons that help children develop their adaptability to the environment by fine-tuning each of their senses: seeing, hearing, tasting, touch, smell, and sense of space.

  • Explore and experiment with different art materials
  • Know the position in space (above, below, front, and back) relative to the child himself
  • Recognize basic shapes & sizes (circle, square, large, and small)
  • Create rudimentary drawings from sensory activities

Lessons on Sandpapers numbers and sand letters are interesting activities that always attract Toddlers in the Language learning area, helping them simulate letters and numbers on paper, form writing skills, write creatively and get closer to letters and numbers.

  • Learn to listen to stories and enjoy sounds
  • Able to introduce oneself (name, age)
  • Show interest in communicating with others through gestures and words

Mathematical under the Montessori philosophy is to provide children with learning material that encourages them to absorb the simplest exercises. Logical thinking, sharp thinking, and eye-eye coordination skills will be gradually accumulated through experiences with teaching aids at the Math Corner.

  • Have perception about numbers through songs, and know some random numbers
  • Count in order from 1 to 10
  • Geometric classification by shape and size

In the Culture corner, children are directly exposed to concrete objects, and vivid models related to the fields of history, geography, and science… Integrating Montessori materials, children build their ability to understand the past and the future in a few clear descriptive words.
