The Montessori pink reading series:

This is the first series in the Montessori literacy curriculum.  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 large moveable alphabet the Child learns vocabulary; phonetically sounding out the three letter words.

From the ‘I Spy’ sensory phonics game with objects only (the objects are sold separately), to the Pink Box 3 word suggestions;  this activity builds in complexity.  Picture and word cards, pink word lists, phrases and sentences and finally the Child’s first book, the Pink Book are all included in this set.
