Early Childhood Dry Pouring
Toddler and Early Childhood Montessori at Home – Dry Pouring
 
Dry Pouring, from the Practical Life area, helps children refine skills that will help them in everyday life and is easily adaptable to the home environment.
 
Pouring cereal into a bowl? Transferring baking soda and salt into a flour mixture? These daily tasks can seem daunting to a child, but in reality, present no problem with a little bit of practice. This is where Dry Pouring (and Wet Pouring) come in.
 
Dry Pouring appeals to a child’s love of materials with tiny components, such as grains of rice or small beads. They carefully pour these materials from a bigger vessel into one or more smaller containers. It’s powerful to witness when even one grain of rice spills, how carefully a child will return it to its proper place.
 
Having a good command over pouring both wet and dry objects will help the child with other work in the classroom. For example, washing floors or dishes requires pouring large amounts of water into a bucket to then be poured in the sink or wastewater area. This takes precision, but is no problem for a child who has already mastered pouring skills from early Practical Life materials such as Dry Pouring.
