Practical Life Skills
Exercises of Practical Life are designed to help children become independent in their immediate environment. The activities are simple concrete exercises that are familiar to the children as they have seen adults performing them in their daily routines such as pouring water from a jug, spooning pasta from one bowl to another, threading beads etc. The activities are designed to provide real-life experiences that ensure the comprehensive development and refinement of fine and gross motor skills. Children achieve eye-hand co-ordination, independence, self-reliance, a sense of order and care, concentration and one-to-one correspondence. The children also acquire social awareness that enables them to interact and cooperate with other children.
