Montessori Language materials
The Language Materials have some inherent elements in common with the Sensorial Materials. Mostly it is their simplicity and the fact that they provide keys for the children to discover something that is beyond what lies on the surface. When children first come to the Montessori environment, usually around three years of age, their spoken language is developed, their vocabulary is quite extensive and their grammatical structures of speech are well established. They have a boundless capacity to expand and enrich their language and, as a natural consequence, the desire to write and read.
