12 months of Montessori returns this month with wonderful ideas, information, activities and printables for Language Arts. Before we get started have you seen our practical life toddler activities and task chart printable ? We love practical life at our house! Don’t you? Last month we spent time enjoying geography and culture. It was awesome! We shared over 10 different activities and traveled the globe with wonderful instruments from Montessori Services. This month it’s all about the Montessori movable alphabet and Language Arts. I’m so excited, let’s get started!!

Montessori Movable Alphabet
The Magnet Clip Men have been so handy. The kids can clip cards easily. Bells picks a picture card to clip, we add the letters and say the sound of each letter, ending with the word. Then she points to the picture and says the word, or sound.
Clipping the cards works on fine motor skills and hand muscles that help with writing. Through the movable alphabet and picture cards the child becomes familiar with the alphabet and how letters are put together to make words.
Bells is working on sandpaper letters and phonetic sounds which is the step before introducing the moveable alphabet and the child using it on their own. We use the activity on the magnet tray for a great intro to the moveable alphabet.
Introduce the sounds individually, and after the child has mastered the sounds it is much easier for them to understand and be able to sound out words. Teaching Montessori In The Home-The Pre-School Years is a wonderful book, I highly recommend.
We absolutely love our cursive wood movable alphabet and the print set is absolutely amazing too. I have been having so much fun watching my son sound out words and use the moveable alphabet. He has been enjoying it often and loves being able to read. Seeing his excitement is contagious in our house and makes us love Montessori even more. All About Reading has really been a big help for giving him that boost of confidence and the great materials needed.
