File 1: Exercises of Practical Life (EPL)

Exercises of practical life (EPL) include simple actions in daily life performed by adults around. They are areal and happening as real situations. If they are introduced to children in the early life at the right time, they learn to do things themselves rather than depending on elders. Independence will become a personal trait to be there in them for the entire lifetime.

The guidebook reveals a range of step by step activities – from a simple act, such as the act of pouring water from a jug to the complex acts such as Washing a set of dishes. All such acts tend to satisfy the urge that is there in the children to do things, to be independent, loving to work, enhance internal happiness, feeling self-satisfied and self respect. The habits to give and take gracefully, coordination and grace in movements; love for nature.

File 2: Exercises of Sensorial Development

Senses play an important role in everybody’s life. They will connect like bridges to the environment around. They act like channels for the outside information to pass into the mind. Child will be in the rapid development from the age of 7 years. The senses are sharpened. It is possible only through the opportunities given to children.

Further activities lead children through three lettered phonetic words (pink level), longer phonetic ords (blue level), high frequency words (sight words), phonogramic words (green level) and finally total reading.
