Educational and Fun go hand in hand: The educational aspect of this item and how fun it is to use/play with it is quite obvious.
Falling under the area of Practical Life lessons, these Montessori Dressing Frames are an important set of materials for learning self-care skills.
Using the Montessori principle of isolation of the difficulty, the idea is to break down the skills of dressing and isolate the most difficult stage. When dressing, the child may come across an obstacle such as a zip, buckle, button or how to tie a shoe lace. This Montessori item isolates each skill apart from the object of clothing, and allows the child to practise the skill until mastered.
Once complete the child can then convert this skill to an item of clothing while they are wearing it. The frames can be introduced to a child at any stage, as there are easy and more difficult fastenings such as Velcro to Laces. The teacher can show the skills slowly and precisely to the child, encouraging lots of repetition until the skills is learnt.
The child may not even realise they are learning the skill, and so it is important to help them transfer the skill to their own clothing. The child will feel a huge sense of pride and responsibility once they learn the skill, allowing them to improve their concentration, increase their independence and feel more mature. This will also allow them to become confident in their daily actions.
Why buy this item: The Montessori Dressing Frames are an excellent tool to help the child become more independent. It allows them to improve their fine motor skills such as their hand and finger motor skills and their hand eye coordination.
The brightly coloured frames allow the child to practice the skill of fastenings over and over again until perfected, and they can dress themselves independently. These frames are an excellent tool to allow the child to have fun while mastering skills for lifelong learning.
