Montessori Moveable Alphabet Pictures - Surprise Freebie

Once a child has mastered the ability to write or make 3 letter phonetic words (mom, pot, can, zip), it can sometimes be a struggle to successfully make phonetic words that are longer than 3 letters. It can take months of work using the Moveable Alphabet (or other similar materials) for a child to be able to 'hear' and replicate all the sounds of longer words.

To help the children practice hearing the sounds in longer words, Montessori teachers use a variety of sound games. These can include "I Spy", clapping words, and games that use manipulation of small objects. In order to allow the child to continue building/constructing longer words independently, Montessori teachers typically use small objects or photo picture cards to make sure the child is constructing words that contain the sounds that the child is familiar with. The goal, as always, is to set the child up for success!

    i love reading your blog and getting the special freebie link. however, i can never get the freebie because the link is only good for 48 hours and i often open the email a week later. we are not on line and must go to the library to go on line. this only happens once or twice a week and then only for 2 or 3 hours. email is only part of the online work to be you help?

    I love your website! As a homeschooling mom, it really helps to have free materials, so that I can teach my children using the Montessori method. I can't wait to print out the moveable alphabet! My son is having difficulty with his silent letters and I also have a daughter who is ready for them as well. Thanks again!
