Language Arts

  • Identify all the letters and initial sounds using sand paper letters
  • Identify sounds in words
  • Trace letters in correct form and character

The language materials are designed to support, develop, and refine vision, hearing and speech as a preparation for more formal learning of writing, reading and penmanship.  The child is also exposed to many exercises designed to develop sensorimotor skills.

Mathematics

  • Identify numbers 0-9
  • Master 1-10 (quantity and quality)

The concepts are presented in a concrete way to enable the child to count to ten and to understand the quantity by using the materials such as linier rods, sandpaper numbers and spindle box.

Practical Life

  • To help the child become independent
  • To enable him to correlate his/her own physical, psychic and moral desires

The Practical Life section lays the foundation for all other works to be done in the classroom.  The activities are everyday tasks that a child needs to learn to master the care of self and of the environment.  Such activities include pouring, sweeping, grace and courtesy.  The activities are presented to a child in such a way that concentration, coordination, independence and order are developed.

Sensorial

  • Shapes
  • Smooth & rough
  • Hot & cold
  • Sweet & sour
  • Spicy & sweet
  • Rough & soft
  • Cooking
  • Sensorial materials have a built-in control of error, which helps to develop in the child a habit of working independently, without fear of making mistakes, thereby becoming more comfortable in the fact that errors are essential to the process of learning.

This area contains Montessori specific materials that help the child refine his or her experience of sight, sound, touch, taste and smell.  Sensory experiences with materials are the child’s first step toward understanding the abstract concepts they represent.
