Practical Life in Elementary

Practical Life in the Lower Elementary classroom exists as a culmination and refinement of the abilities developed in the preschool classroom.

Care of self, care of the environment, grace and courtesy are all expectations at this level. Activities include food preparation, sewing, and arts and crafts that support research and Culture Studies.

Building on the Practical Life expectations from Lower Elementary, Practical Life skills continue to be emphasised in Upper Elementary through care of the self, care of the environment, and grace and courtesy, which take on a larger role when the students are off-site for activities during the school day and overnight.
