A big thank you for stopping by to have a cup of coffee on Friday morning. We felt it was important for the children to understand why someone would grind coffee. We used it as a motor activity and one that also involved concentration but we wanted them to see the practical application of this activity. This is the reason we call that area of the classroom "Practical Life." Although the activities have many aims such as increasing concentration, increasing fine motor skills, preparing the hand for writing or the mind for reading, the activites help the child become more independent. So, thank you for having coffee on Friday!! We enjoyed serving you!
