Pouring with a Funnel There\'s a special wonder that accompanies the Montessori Practical Life materials, especially the ones that allow children to use water. You may have noticed your child pouring water between small pitchers, or pouring into different sized containers, absorbed in concentration as he or she watches the water flow smoothly from one vessel to another. The lesson on Pouring with a Funnel is especially engaging, as the child can watch the water pool in the funnel before streaming into the small-mouthed vessel.

Handling the funnel and pitcher at the same time requires subtle muscle control Catherine McTamaney, Ed.D. Christopher Academy Alumna
