Green Lentils Spoon Transferring (Montessori Practical Life)

Fundamental skills such as pouring, spooning, and tonging follow a sequential order where ideally each lesson builds upon the last one. Thus, spooning, while being one of the first Practical Life activities a toddler would do starting at around 18 months, is generally introduced after dry pouring and water pouring. Spoon transferring involves a more advanced type of skill such as balancing (e.g. beans, glass beads, pasta, lentils etc) and transferring them from one bowl to another, completely emptying the first bowl.

Adrian has been enjoying all different kinds of spooning activities for a while already, and at 2 1/2 he still enjoys them. He makes sure though that not even a single lentil falls off the spoon, and he would methodically complete the activity until every single lentil is transferred.

The cycle of the activity is completed once lentils (or anything else a child is using ) is transferred from the left bowl to the right. The child would then return the tray back to its shelf.
