Language Activities

Language is a part of human culture and means for communication. This helps in interaction among people and brings them together.The child learns oral language naturally by abserving his environment.
When the child enters a Montessori environment he is introduced to the language through enrichment of vacabulary.He learns that the words are made of sounds and each sound has a symbol. By absorbing the sounds and the symbols, the child begins reading. His experiences in practical life and sensorial education serve as a preparation for his writing.

The alphabets are introduced to the child through Sand paper letters which provide a phonetic basis for reading.

Then with the help of moveable alphabets (cut-out letters) the child builds the words with relation to the pictures, listening to the sounds in succession. These activities serve as a preparation for the time when the child assimilates what he knows and then he explodes into writing.
