Abstract/Notes: This action research investigated how integrating practical life exercises and self-regulation lessons could foster emotion regulation in lower elementary children. Twenty First and Second grade students in a public Montessori school participated in this four-week study. Quantitative data tools included students’ feelings self assessments, parent questionnaire, feelings check-in, and tallies of student behavior. Qualitative tools included students’ feeling journals, my observation journal, and children’s practical life reflection. Data analysis indicated that teaching children to identify their feelings and offering choices of calm down activities in the practical life area gave children the tools to recalibrate themselves. By the end of the study, an increasing number of children checked in daily as feeling happy, calm, and focused. Introducing social emotional lessons in September alongside classroom rules, routines, and expectations along with calm down tools equips children with a preventative rather than remedial repertoire of tools to emotionally regulate themselves to be successful learners for life.

Abstract/Notes: Kinder lieben es, Tätigkeiten nachzuahmen, die sie bei Erwachsenen im täglichen Leben sehen. Dies hat schon Maria Montessori beobachtet und entsprechende Übungen in ihre Pädagogik integriert - »Die Übungen des praktischen Lebens« sind fester Bestandteil der Montessori-Pädagogik. Die Übungen in diesem Buch helfen Kindern, wichtige Lern- und Entwicklungsprozesse erfolgreich zu bewältigen. Das Buch beschäftigt sich ausführlich mit diesem Thema und stellt eine Vielzahl an Übungen vor, die in dieser Fülle in keinem anderen Buch zu finden sind. Neben diesen praktischen Ideen werden in einem theoretischen Teil die wichtigsten Aspekte der Pädagogik Maria Montessori erläutert und die Einbettung der "Übungen des praktischen Lebens" innerhalb der Pädagogik deutlich gemacht. Das Buch eignet sich besonders für pädagogische Fachkräfte im Elementarbereich und im heilpädagogischen Arbeitsfeld. Aber auch Eltern, Großeltern, Tagesmütter und Spielgruppen - Leiterinnen finden darin interessante Impulse. [Children love to imitate activities that they see adults doing in their daily lives. Maria Montessori already observed this and integrated appropriate exercises into her pedagogy - »The exercises of practical life« are an integral part of Montessori pedagogy. The exercises in this book help children to successfully master important learning and development processes. The book deals with this topic in detail and presents a large number of exercises that cannot be found in any other book in this abundance. In addition to these practical ideas, the most important aspects of Maria Montessori's pedagogy are explained in a theoretical part and the embedding of the "practical life exercises" within the pedagogy is made clear. The book is particularly suitable for pedagogical specialists in elementary school and in the field of curative education. But also parents, grandparents, childminders and playgroup leaders find interesting impulses in it.]
