Daisy Academy Montessori Preschool

Montessori language curriculum is an integrated approach that combines phonetics and the whole language.

Through the materials the child becomes familiar with sounds and symbols and begins to make the transition to putting sounds together to make his or her own words.

Sandpaper letters, metal insets for shape tracing and moveable alphabet letters all aid the child in developing the muscular control needed to write.

Enhancing awareness of what is heard, writing exercises, pre-reading work and finally early reading activities are part of every Montessori child's progression.

The language program is seen as a preparation for more formal learning at the elementary level.
