Description

The Montessori methodology of teaching, starts with writing, before the Child learns to read.  They start with the sandpaper letters – cursive print, a set of boards, each with a rough textured cursive letter of the alphabet.  The function of the rough texture, is to further reinforce their learning experience, as the Child sounds out the letter of the alphabet, while tracing the letter.  Their fingertip is stimulated through the rough surface, triggering tactile nerve-endings the feeling of which will be absorbed by memory muscle.

Features of The Sandpaper Letters – Cursive:

  • the direct objective, for the Child is to;
    • learn the letters of the alphabet
  • indirectly, the Child develops;
    • focus and concentration
    • improved tactile sensory stimulation
    • associate sounds of the letters to the written letter of the alphabet
  • this core Montessori material forms part of the curriculum support material for the language syllabus
  • by starting with the cursive script, the Child learns to shape the letters smoothly and fluidly, without having to lift the pen and break their concentration.

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.
