Another Montessori Practical Life exercise I want to show you is
sorting colored beads.
- colored beads on a small dish
- small dishes (as many as there are colors of the beads)
After a few tries when the child doesn't want to chose this exercise any more, you may want to change the beads to something else. He can sort all kinds of things - pencils, crayons, Legos (by shape, size, color).
|Ania started with sorting small objects by shape.|
|Later she has moved on to sorting small beads by color.|
