Spelling can be fun for kids if you will teach them using fun activities. Spelling games for kids are a great way to teach them new words and how to write. Check out below for the instructions to our St. Patrick's Day gold coins spelling Montessori activity.
Literacy is the ability that allows us to capture language through reading and writing. They are two fundamental skills for all children; however, they must be learned, unlike other skills. That is, children do not develop them naturally. Language is the main instrument of communication. It provides the ability to share knowledge, ideas, and opinions and increases learning and development.
Reading opens the doors to information and training in all senses, allows children to advance in knowledge, brings amazing discoveries, and gives the possibility of preserving traditions and culture. These are learned skills through taste and habit, so we must encourage them at an early age. It doesn't mean that it will not be understood if it is not done when children are still young. It means that the processes will be slower and more complex since critical skills present only in the first years of life have been lost.
Reading provides children with access to a magical world of extensive knowledge and experiences with multiple possibilities, contributing significantly to their overall development, especially developing their learning, and thinking skills.
The Montessori learning method proposes starting with the letters' sound, not with the letters' name. Children learn to read and write using sounds to form words; after this, learning begins with writing. It is easier for children to start this process with lowercase letters and not capital letters since they will perform the best stroke.
