MONTESSORI LANGUAGE MATERIALS
An Introduction to Montessori Learning
Montessori learning is a child focused scientific educational approach developed by Dr. Maria Montessori which is based on the observation of the children from childhood to adult.
History of Montessori Education
Dr. Maria Montessori was an Italian physician, educator, and innovator, known for her innovative educational method that has its basis on building the natural way of learning in children.
Dr. Maria Montessori started the Casa dei Bambini (also called Children’s House) in 1907 in Rome. The one-of-a-kind philosophy of Dr. Montessori soon began to attract educators worldwide to adapt this philosophy of teaching the child. This led to many Montessori schools getting started in Europe which slowly spread to North and South America, Africa and Asia. Very soon, Montessori Education became the buzzword around the Educational arena Worldwide.
The increased acceptance of the Montessori way of teaching and learning prompted Dr. Montessori to establish the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) in 1929 to provide a solid foundation for the future of this concept.
The Montessori approach is based on the understanding of the child’s natural learning tendencies in a prepared environment for multiple age groups from 0-3, 3-6, 6-9, 9-12, and 12-14 years. In a prepared environment, the child explores and learns independently.
The Montessori environment consists of specially designed learning materials that encourage kids to learn activities of their own choice and taste. As the child explores, it learns discovering things, developing concentration, starts to become creative and self-disciplined.

What is Phonics or Phonetics?
Phonics teaches the way to connect the sounds of spoken English with letters (for example: that the sound/k/ can be represented by c, ck, ch, or q spellings) and teaching them to blend the sounds of letters together to produce approximate pronunciations of unknown words. This set of Phonics cards covers all the alphabets in one set from a to z.
