From birth, every child is striving for independence that will help them be individuals. And we as adults, parents and teachers, must help him/her on this path by guiding them with the skills needed to achieve the same. General Activities for Practical Life are familiar activities the child has seen at home like serving, pouring, sweeping, polishing, spooning and buttoning. These tasks help to develop effective concentration and coordination, social awareness and a sense of order in the environment. The child quickly learns about the limits and possibilities of the material world – how to adapt to the environment and how to be creative in it.
We build a knowledge and understanding of the world through our senses, not just through listening, watching or reading. The quality of learning is directly related to the quality and quantity of the experience the child receives. Sensorial materials develop the senses of the young child by isolating a defining quality such as colour, weight, size, shape, texture, sound or smell. Each sensorial discovery or experience gets internalized and remains with the child throughout his /her life.
In a Montessori environment children evolve from the study of concrete mathematical concepts to abstract ones. With the help of the Montessori materials, the child begins to recognize the shapes and names of numbers 0 to 9. Quantity is introduced and the child relates the written number with its specific physical quantity. The child gradually becomes familiar with the Decimal System and gains a deeper understanding of how numbers function. Quantities of units, tens, hundreds and thousands are introduced. Having learned concrete math concepts through the use of materials, the child is prepared to work with more abstract concepts such as fractions, key elements of geometry and problem solving on paper.
According to Dr Maria Montessori, the evolution of language begins with the infant's innate capacity to absorb fragments of speech that form the basis for further language development. The child first discovers that sounds have meaning and then isolates parts of speech. The child's acquisition of oral skills occurs naturally, but opportunities for equivalent patterns of written language development must be provided by parents and teachers. Experiences gained from the Practical Life and Sensorial activities serve as a preparation for reading and writing. Children are given a phonetic basis for reading. The child hears the sound, sees the shape and by tracing, develops the muscles needed for writing. He or she is then ready to pursue an interest in words while cultivating writing skills at an individual pace. Through storytelling, conversation and many other exercises, the child's vocabulary grows. Eventually these preparatory activities culminate in a child beginning to write. Dr Montessori calls this an 'explosion' into writing.
Activities in art, geography, science, music, dancing and dramatics are an important parts of our curriculum. Exercises in body movement assist the child's physical development, body awareness, and coordination.
All knowledge is connected and making connections brings added meaning to the excitement of learning and discovery. History, geography, science, math and language are intricately woven together and knowledge therefore becomes unified. Further young children eagerly absorb difficult concepts if they are presented in a concrete form. The Montessori materials make concepts tangible and serve as touchstones in the child's memory for years to come. At Dolphinz, we believe that each child's creativity is unique unto him or herself. Creativity is not the production of works of art but unity of the entire growing personality. In speaking, reading and writing the child must master the symbols and systems invented by others. In expression and application he/she should be allowed to use his or her own ideas, devise his/ her own symbols and have the opportunity for expressing imagination and feeling..
