3. The Language Avenue

Language is made of sounds. To teach a child how to read and write we first help them master the sub-skills of sounds and how to break and make sounds into words. Dr. Montessori’s method of isolating difficulty becomes pivotal when it comes to learning how to read and write. We teach the child the individual sounds of the letter and how the letter is formed. Then we help build words that they know from their spoken language with movable alphabets. Writing develops spontaneously. A child can become a confident independent reader and overcome any reading disorders if they are led through a sequenced path of the pyramid of reading.  Fluent and automatic word identification starts with having a clear understanding of the phonetic awareness, followed by strong letter recognition. Comprehension follows as we open their world to language and the love of books and literature. Your child will have the opportunity to enjoy early literacy and writing.
