One of the Montessori learning method principles is to trust children's abilities as the builders of their knowledge. Children have a great capacity to learn; that's why Montessori speaks of the child's absorbing mind; however, this is not to say that literacy processes are easy for them.
Most parents are eager for their children to learn to read and write; however, this is a process that can be complicated for them. It is not about being the right age; it is more about having the necessary skills.
Several factors affect this process: children's interest, a prepared environment, stimuli, the role of the adult, the pace of learning. All this must be considered to start a literacy process with children.
The Montessori learning method proposes that children develop and strengthen each of their learning processes through their own experience and initiative, where the adult is the one who provides the materials and spaces.
For children to learn properly, they must begin by being interested in what the letters sound like and not in what they are called; playing to break words is an excellent alternative. After completing this stage, children learn the letters by manipulating them, drawing them on different surfaces, relating them and textures.
When children can identify letters through sounds, they are ready to begin with grammatical processes with images' help. Children require the accompaniment of an adult in this process that can be long and difficult.
