Montessori Based Learning Hub
1. Practical Life Skills: Three-year-olds continue to develop practical life skills, such as pouring, spooning, and polishing, which help to build independence and self-confidence. These activities also provide opportunities for children to practice their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
2. Sensorial Activities: The Montessori approach places a strong emphasis on sensorial activities, which help children to explore and understand the world around them using their senses. For example, children may work with materials like the Pink Tower, which is a set of graduated wooden cubes that children can use to explore concepts like size, dimension, and volume.
3. Language Development: The Montessori approach places a great deal of emphasis on language development, and three-year-olds are encouraged to explore language in a variety of ways. Teachers may introduce children to new vocabulary words, read stories aloud, and provide opportunities for children to practice their writing and spelling skills.
4. Math Skills: Three-year-olds begin to explore basic math concepts, such as number recognition, counting, and basic addition and subtraction. They may work with materials like the Number Rods, which are a set of wooden rods of different lengths that can be used to explore concepts like length, size, and quantity.
5. Culture and Science: The Montessori approach encourages children to explore the world around them through cultural and scientific activities. For example, children may learn about different countries and cultures, or explore the natural world through activities like gardening and caring for animals.
