Description

Children are curious, and fascinated with reading.  Using the large movable alphabet letters creates a tangible connection between the letter of the alphabet and the sound, phonetically sounded out by the teacher, proves to be an optimal method of learning.

Children trace the shapes of the movable letters, as they embark on the phonetic exploration of words.  This is a pivotal stage where their memory muscle absorbs the letter shapes, and provide the foundation for constructing three-letter words. The result is a burgeoning enthusiasm for the art of written expression, an explosion of reading is set to unfold.

  • these letters are all in the print form

One of the attractions to the Montessori Method is the extensive use of wood.

We use several types of wood, sourced from renewable sources, in the production of our Montessori Materials.

  • Solid beechwood for cylinder blocks, pink towers, dressing frames and brown stairs.
  • Birchply for trays, holders and animal and botany puzzles.
  • MDF for puzzle maps
  • Pineply for boxes and containers

 

We ensure that the coatings and inks used are not only eco-friendly, but also non-toxic.

Our wooden products are manufactured by responsible partner factories both locally and abroad and ensure that fair labour practices are adopted.

Care instructions for Childrens House Wooden Materials:

  • If wooden products are exposed to liquids, wipe dry as quickly as possible.
  • Most of the surfaces can be wiped with a damp cloth if exposed to dirt or grime.
  • Avoid leaving any of our wooden product in direct sunlight, as it may warp certain woods and/ or the coating may fade over time.

    My children enjoy the feel of the large letters in the movable alphabet. They work well with the mat and pink objects.
