The idea of this activity to is to learn to care for one’s own glasses. Many of our children wear glasses and should be learning to care for them. I created this work for my classroom for our practical life area. I found most of the materials at my local Goodwill store. I felt that caring for our glasses was truly a useful and important skill for my kids and they have really enjoyed doing the work. I try to set all my work up so that the kids work from left to right (literacy skill!!) and my focus is always on the process, not the product. I think those things are important to consider and remember when working with a child.
After the students have had practice with this activity, have them clean their own glasses.
