Description

Children cannot wait to learn to read and spell.  Using the small movable alphabet letters is an ideal means of “sounding out” words, and helps them to gras the concept of reading, and spelling.  Watch out for the explosion of reading which follows.

Learning phonetically

They learn to sound out the letters of a word, phonetically.  Initially, they use the sandpaper letters, then children move on to the large, or the small movable letters.  The small movable letters are usually used for more complex words, with 4 to 5 consonants, and double vowels.  They are also able to write sentences and stories.

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.

  • 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.
