The Montessori pink reading series:

The first in the reading range, this series provides the Child with an in-depth understanding of word building and reading. This language material activity explores sounds, letters, word building.  Using the moveable alphabet the Child learns vocabulary.  Sounding out the three letter words phonetically.

From the ‘I Spy’ sensory phonics game with objects only (the objects are sold separately), to the Pink Box 3 word suggestions.  The activity builds to picture and word cards, pink word lists, phrases and sentences and finally the Child’s first book, the Pink Book.


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

  • objects
  • large moveable alphabet
  • mat for the large moveable alphabet.

These additional products are sold by Childrens House, but the teacher can substitute her own similar items at her disposal.  The objects are not yet in stock, but will be on our shelves later this year.
