♡ FINE MOTOR CONTROL ~ when children practice small muscle hand control by tonging, pinching, transferring, threading, etc, they develop the strength, dexterity, and control needed to manipulate many everyday items such as a pencil, spoon, button, scissors, zippers, and more … “He does it with his hands, by experience, first in play and then through work. The hands are the instruments of man’s intelligence.” ~ Dr. Maria Montessori. The Absorbent Mind.
♡ DEXTERITY ~ perfecting skills and ease in using their hands
♡ CRAFTING ~ children are innately very curious and imaginative, so providing a thoughtful stimulating prepared environment with lots of opportunities for artistic expression, will naturally spur creativity and self-expression!
♡ PRACTICAL LIFE SKILLS ~ Practical life activities are the heart of Montessori education as they play an essential role in a child’s development. Practical life activities such as threading pipe cleaners or transferring small objects offer many benefits such as refinement of fine motor skills, the development of focused attention, and preparation for writing and reading. “Montessori Practical Life is more than the wonderful feeling of doing real work, of being helpful to others, this work also sharpens valuable mental skills including planning, organization, task initiation, working memory, self-regulation, flexibility, goal-directed persistence, and sustained attention. These are executive functions of the brain, and are more reliable predictors of academic achievements than even IQ scores.”—The Universal Child, Guided By Nature by Susan M. Stephenson.
♡ HAND-EYE coordination ~ the ability to coordinate the information received through the eyes to control, guide, and direct the hands in the accomplishment of a given task
♡ SPATIAL AWARENESS ~ understanding the positioning of objects in relation to oneself in that given space and understanding the relationship of these objects when there is a change of position ~ think puzzles, symmetry games, patterns …
♡ PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS ~ math helps us think analytically and have better reasoning abilities
♡ SENSORY PLAY ~using play dough provides a wide array of developmental, learning, and especially sensory benefits. Tactile stimulation is extremely important for the developing brain since the “sensitive period” (which Dr. Montessori defined as a period of special sensitivity to particular stimuli) from birth till 4 yo is sensory refinement ~ and whatever is perceived through the hand, goes directly to the brain!
♡ LOGICAL THINKING is the process of using focus and self-control to solve problems, thus helping us make inferences, deductions, understand the consequences of our actions, set and follow through on goals. Math develops attention, concentration, memory, and logical thinking
♡ BILATERAL COORDINATION ~ the ability to use both sides of the body at the same time in a coordinated manner (for example when the child holds a pipe cleaner with one hand and threads with the other, or while using scissors)
♡ ANALYTICAL THINKING ~ mathematics develops the ability to think and investigate and find concrete solutions
