In this book, a Montessori teacher shows you a complete series of materials and activities you can easily use at home to teach your 3-6 year old to read and write. Most children experience a natural Sensitive Period for acquiring reading and writing skills between 3-6 years of age. This is the time when learning written language is the easiest and most natural for a child. Having a solid foundation in reading and writing prepares a child perfectly for early success in school. Helping a young child learn to read and write is not difficult. This book shows clear, sequential materials and activities that make learning these skills natural and fun. You start by helping your child develop pre-reading and pre-writing skills using fun materials. This leads naturally into writing letters and numerals, and a simple three step sequence of activities for helping your child learn to read. You can do this! Most of the materials use common, inexpensive items. Recommendations are also given for a selection of affordable Montessori and other materials for optional use, as well as for the very best tablet apps for reading and how to guide your child in using them.
