" And this, encouraged mummy to go on, and try to create more fun time together with her. And this going to be our lifetime memorial.

Ok, let's come back to our topic of the week : RED! Yes, mummy would like to try "home school" for Chen, and starting with 1 activity per day. Since Chen is just around 2 years old, so the most important thing is still having fun, so i just try to introduce something to her in mini games method.

Introduction :
The purpose and aim of Practical Life is to help the child gain control in the coordination of his movement, and help the child to gain independence and adapt to his society. It is therefore important to “Teach teaching, not correcting” (Montessori) in order to allow the child to be a fully functional member in his own society. Practical Life Exercises also aid the growth and development of the child’s intellect and concentration and will in turn also help the child develop an orderly way of thinking.

「生活教育」是蒙特梭利環境裡,最早介紹給孩子的工作,它包括基本動作、生活禮儀、小肌肉發展訓練、動作的控制、照顧自己、以及照顧環境等等項目,都與我 們的生活息息相關。主要目的在訓練幼兒肢體動作的協調能力,使其適應環境,奠定獨立生活的基礎,並培養孩子的耐心與注意力、手眼協調及互助、愛物的好習性。

Preparation / 准备工作 : 

Material / 材料用具 :
Any Container,Jug,Cup that you have 任何合适的容器

Colored Water (by food coloring) 水(用可食用色素染红)
Funnel (if you have) 漏斗

What we explored today/ 我们今天探索了什么 :

Practical Life Exercises 生活自理能力培养
Hand-Eye Coordination 手眼协调
Red 还是红色

This activity was one of the easiest activities I ever prepared.
Chen was super excited when she saw the "red water" inside the tray, without any instruction/explanation, she started the activity by her own. 

The story behind the scene : mummy let her to pour in the water into the bottle without funnel, then you can see the water on the table and floor also. After this, add in funnel, then without any leakage.
