Everyone's excited about reading!

Here is J.F. after matching pictures with their beginning sounds. This was a few weeks ago. She's beyond that now, making words with the "mumfable alphabet". Oops!

It's the moveable alphabet. And here is M.B. moving around the letters to form words. Listening for the sounds in the words hones reading and spelling skills. Learning to read well is a gradual process taken one step at a time.

We strive to have each child practice reading skills every single day.

Thanks for the inspiration! I'm new to blogging. I've started a blog called On The Shelf which I hope to be a picture diary of the work out on our classroom shelves. If you have time I'd appreciate any feedback or tips you could share for a fellow Montessorian and new blogger.

I am excited to see another Montessori teacher around. Hope to get connected.
