Taking Care of the Environment

Practical life skills also encompass taking care of the environment, and exercises in this category include sweeping the floor, dusting, and mopping. Engaging in these activities not only promotes the development of motor skills and development, but it encourages children to be active helpers, respecting the space around them and the others who inhabit it. The child will at first naturally be drawn to these new learning experiences, and having mastered them will start to do them without being told as a form of exhibiting responsibility and independence. Remember, any routine household activity can become a learning experience for your child!
