Browse Childrens Books! The Child has an “explosion” into reading and writing, after they learn all the sounds of letters with the Sandpaper Letters, and practice making words with the Movable Alphabet.
“Our experiment, begun in Rome in 1907 with children between 3 and 6 years of age, (which), I believe, (was) the first and only example of an attempt to teach writing by directly connecting the graphic signs of the alphabet with the spoken language without the use of books. The marvellous and unexpected result was that writing came “as an explosion” and began at once with whole words which flowed incessantly from the mind of the child.” Maria Montessori, Formation of the Man, Pg 86
