Preparing a Healthy Snack

Categories: Practical Life / Preschool

This young student brings the tray of supplies and necessary materials to his prepared work space.



He then carefully and purposefully lays out his equipment as he’s been shown.



Nearly ready to sit down!



After observing his teacher and the classroom assistant and being presented with this lesson, the student is able to safely and independently prepare his snack.



Hand grip and dexterity is at work here, as well as attentional demands.


The final step before enjoying – cutting the carrot into bite-size pieces.
