Continued Parent Enrichment: Reading and Writing in the Primary Classroom

September 12 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Successful early literacy consists of development in listening
comprehension, print knowledge, environmental print, alphabet
knowledge, phonemic awareness, phonological short-term memory,
rapid naming, visual memory, and visual perceptual skills. These
skills do not need to be taught separately from each other, but,
rather, integrated in oral language, knowledge of print, and alphabet
knowledge. The Montessori approach encompasses it all. In the
stages of early literacy, children who are exposed to pre-reading and
writing are building a solid foundation for reading and writing during
their Primary years. The Montessori Method prepares the child, from
learning to read to reading to learn, through indirect and direct
preparations, starting in the practical life and sensorial training.
Primary students learn to understand that sounds make words
through exposure to phonics. Other materials follow, which present
the intricacies of non-phonetic spelling and grammar. The Montessori
approach provides a carefully thought-out program to facilitate this
process.

Please join us as we reveal the unique steps of the process of
reading the Montessori Way! RSVP to misssally@montessoriacademychicago.org.
