而嬰幼兒學習/練習一個動作是為了下一個動作做準備，而動作的發展是為了讓BB有更多的機會可以向外探索，也有更多能力可以操作環境而學習(As what Montessori emphasis “Intelligence and The Hand” Absorbent Mind)
Movement development is very important to the infant & young children.
For the new born baby, he moves randomly without co-ordinated and most of his movement is reflex action. As he interacts with the environment and with the mature limbs, vision and nerve system which help him to develop roll over, crawl, sit, balance.
Young children can explore well when he can explore freely by themselves and that help them to learn more things.
So we should think about how to encourage babies to move
- Remove all obstracles
- Avoid playpens/ high chair
- Provide your child something (e.g. object that can move and make sound can fascinating your child to move)
I just make use of empty plastic container and put one block inside then place in front of Abbie. She will have her way to explore. As she enjoying the container which can move and make sound, she can also practise/ refine her movement (which like giving a practice opportunity to her limbs, vision and nerve system).
