First is what we call our “Practical Life” area. In this area children perform simple life skill exercises which produce concentration, confidence, hand/eye coordination, and promote mastery of certain daily life skills, such as: pouring, spooning, threading, using tongs, washing fruit, washing their own hands, buttoning, zippering, folding, etc. Also, food preparation is done in this area of the classroom. During a year we will make applesauce, lemonaide, vegetable soup, salad, muffins, etc. Rather than "play" food we allow the children to make the real thing and then eat it!
