Practical Life for the Older Children in the Casa
Soholt, Polli
NAMTA Journal, v38 n2 p57-65 Spr 2013
Polli Soholt writes about advanced practical life and demonstrates that adding more challenge and complexity for older children leads to more social cooperation. Activities such as washing dishes, polishing, sewing, and food preparation take the child beyond the need to refine basic skills. The older primary children find more reality in tasks such as bringing sewing from home and using math to double recipes for baking projects. This advanced work of the hands enhances the whole community.
