The Montessori classroom is a “living room” for children. Children choose their activities from open shelves with self-correcting materials and work in distinct work areas – on tables or on rugs on the floor.
The practical life exercises
enhance the development of task organization and cognitive order through care of self, care of the environment, exercises of grace and courtesy, and refinement of physical movement and coordination.
The sensorial materials
enable the child to order, classify and describe sensory impressions in relation, length, width, temperature, mass, colour, etc.
