Nowadays, there is much talk about the importance of saving and protecting children's rights, but in truth, have you wondered about the importance that children have in society?
The way children develop will mark the adult's behavior, that is to say, the country's future, which means that childhood plays a vital role in society.
In the development of children, adults play a vital role because they facilitate the spaces to acquire knowledge. Remember that children in their first years of life are like sponges absorbing all the information that they perceive through the senses and learning through example.
It is our obligation as adults to prepare healthy environments that allow children's learning and development in all their dimensions.
However, for María Montessori, the learning result was not only a consequence of imitation. She recognized that children learn through example. Yet, she also considered that there are skills that are acquired only through experience.
For this, she used practical life as a fundamental part of her learning method; through daily activities, boys and girls develop different social, cognitive, and motor skills useful for the rest of their lives.
Through practical life activities, children learn courtesy rules that will allow them to function in a healthy coexistence, develop order and aesthetics, and achieve mastery in their hand and finger movements.
This ability will enable them to write more easily or carry out daily living activities. This approach will also form more autonomous, independent, and more confident children.
Let us remember that the Christmas activities for preschoolers that we propose to children must attend to their needs; this implies that they are designed to consider their capacities. This way, good learning is ensured in which the children's abilities are not limited.
