The pink reading series gives the Child confidence and a basic understanding of how to read by learning the phonetic sound of individual symbols and 3-letter phonetic words. A sudden explosion of comprehension takes hold of the Child, who tries to find more and more words to read. Now is the time to introduce the blue reading series. Match the 4- or 5-letter phonetic word to each of the objects for the blue series.
What is the difference between the Pink and Blue Series?
The blue is a continuation of the pink reading series. Only phonetic words with short vowels are used, however, the phonetic words in the blue reading series are 4- to 5-letters in length. The Child is learning to put more complex sounds together to make longer words.
These 11 objects form the blue box 1 of the The Montessori Blue Reading Series. These objects are used with the large movable alphabet letters and the mat for the large movable alphabet. The Child phonetically sounds out the name of each object. Selecting the movable alphabet letters representing the sounds, they lay them on the mat to form the word.
