Description

The second in the Montessori reading range.  A continuation of the pink reading series, the Montessori blue reading series continues to use only phonetic words with short vowels.  However, the phonetic words in the blue series are 4- to 5-letters in length.  The Child is learning to put more complex sounds together to make longer words.

This series provides the Child with an in-depth understanding of 4- and 5-letter word building and reading. This language material activity explores sounds, letters and word building.  With the use of objects, the activity builds to picture and word cards, lists, phrases and sentences.  Working with the movable alphabet letters, children develop a larger vocabulary and read their second book;  the Blue Book.

Note:  To gain the full benefit of this blue reading series, it is suggested that you use these additional items:

  • objects – (Blue Box 1)  Sold separately – used with the large movable alphabet letters build words.   Should you supply your own objects, ensure that they represent 4- and 5-letter phonetic words.  The Child breaks down the words into their sounds.
  • large movable alphabet
  • mat for the large movable alphabet.
