Learn letters the Montessori way! Based on the proven Montessori teaching method, Montessori: Letter Work introduces readers to letters by their sounds and shapes first!
Written by Bobby and June George, founders of the Baan Dek Montessori School,Montessori: Letter Work is part of the Abrams Montessori series that introduces young readers to key concepts by beginning with the concrete and moving to the abstract.
Featuring textures for readers to touch and trace, each letter is also accompanied by a familiar object that shares its sound. Little scholars will learn to:
- Identify letters by the sounds they make
- Trace each textured letterform with a finger
- Name objects beginning with each letter sound
- And more!
Montessori: Letter Work also has pronunciation spelling guides to help teachers and caretakers pronounce the letter sound, rather than the letter name, to assist with prereading learning!
Montessori is a method of education based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning, and collaborative play. In Montessori classrooms children make creative choices in their learning, while teachers offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process. Children work in groups and individually to discover and explore knowledge of the world, gain useful stepping stones, and develop their skillsets.
A is for Ant, D is for Dog, F is for Fan, G is for Goat, H is for Hat, I is for Igloo, K is for King, Q is for Quail, Y is for Yo-Yo, and more!
With each book in the series, young readers absorb age-appropriate information and gain a better understanding of the world around them.
