Books for children. Inspired by Montessori. "The combination of phonetics and simple retro illustrations makes for an excellent entree into pre-literacy." - Wall Street Journal
Montessori: Map Work
As with all things Montessori, students begin with the concrete and move to the abstract. When learning geography, students first develop an understanding that the earth is a round globe, made up of land and water.
Montessori: Shape Work
When learning shapes, Montessori students first develop an understanding of the spatial object in comparison to other shapes and a relevant application for each shape—before learning the names.
Montessori: Number Work
This book follows the Montessori method by introducing the numbers 1 to 10 first as quantities to count before showing them as numerals.
Montessori: Letter Work
In Montessori classrooms, students learn to write before they learn to read, so the process is driven by their own words and thoughts before those of others. We start with the sounds of the letters, and then come to learn their names.
