Pouring is an early practical life lesson. As the child develops their pouring skills, similar more advanced pouring activities are introduced. A white ceramic teapot with a lid; which is designed for the small hands of the Child; holds 500ml of tea, and pours beautifully. Use it with our white ceramic teacups, and saucers.
Maria Montessori believed implacably in the value of working with others in a positive, polite and peaceful manner. She laid out; in her teachings of the practical life environment; the basis of what she meant in the grace and courtesy lesson plan. This includes teaching children about the social skills used in their day-to-day interactions with others. Part of this curriculum includes tea parties, where children serve their friends in the classroom. They can use this teapot to pour the tea while they discuss the business of the day.
