Daily life exercises include basic movements, living etiquette, taking care of themselves, and caring for the environment. The purpose is to train children's physical activities and stimulate the coordination and flexible development of the nervous system, while cultivating their independent living consciousness, ability, self-confidence, patience, concentration and focus. Sense of order.
Daily life practice has an initial and fundamental role in the entire Montessori education system and is inseparable from Montessori education in other fields. Sensory education requires the development of visual, tactile, audible, odorous, olfactory and sensational sensations, and many of them are trained in daily life. For example, children use hand or tool to hold and clip items of different sizes, soft and hard, and directly sense water temperature and water in activities with water; for example, the number and shape of items need to be counted in self-service and service for others. It is also inseparable from mathematics learning; it is directly related to scientific learning in caring for animals and plants; and the study and habits of civility and politeness are dependent on the tradition and background education of each country and national cultural history; the language and daily life of young children The relationship between life practice is like the relationship between fish and water. From the actual and physical language of life, for young children, it will be abstract and incomprehensible empty sounds and vocabulary. Therefore, young children need to form in rich daily life exercises. The concept of various things. Daily life practice is the basic stage to help children truly integrate into the Montessori environment, and is the first to introduce to children.
Montessori believes that “children must develop their own activities through their own activities, so children need to have an object that can make him work in order to give him the motivation to do activities. But in the family, this need is Neglected.” In the Montessori classroom, these daily teaching aids and exercises provide children with an environment and conditions to support and satisfy their wishes, to enable their potential to develop and experience to grow. She said: "Indeed, we can't create genius. We can only give each child the opportunity to realize their potential, make them an independent, safe and balanced individual, let each child learn at the right time, naturally. And happily produced."
From the sociological point of view, children's daily practice exercises to meet the social personality formation for a far-reaching purpose. Social personality is one of the indispensable factors for children as future citizens to inherit and develop their own habits and lifestyles. In the practical sense, it is also prepared for children to enter the primary school to live independently and study. Secondly, from the perspective of children's physiology and psychology, daily life exercises to meet children's inner development, exercise ability, promote independence, understanding, concentration, willpower, order, self-confidence, responsibility, honor and sense The development of the recognition of objects, etc. is its purpose. It can be seen that the practice and education of children's daily life is the basis of Montessori education and the most important part of Montessori education.
Linked to the status quo in China, due to the basic national policy of implementing family planning in China, the modern family structure has undergone fundamental changes. With the advent of the "only child" era, many parents habitually take care of everything for their children, and even consider the housework that they can do as a potential danger. Since there is no independent practice opportunity, the only child is increasingly dependent on parents. The end result is that the opportunity to acquire the ability to live is deprived, lack of self-confidence, poor independence, and can not withstand setbacks and failures. This is also the educational philosophy of learning and inheriting Montessori, guiding parents to scientifically understand children, treat children and correctly educate children.
