Montessori Language Materials

“Reading the written word is the greatest triumph of civilization.” Maria Montessori.
What is Montessori Language Development?
There is a clear distinction between reading and writing. Writing precedes reading. 
Reading means the interpretation of the idea by means of graphic symbols.
A child does not read until he receives ideas from the written word.
A child who has not heard a word spoken but who recognizes it when he sees it put together on a table in movable letters and known what it means, that is the name of something, really reads.
In reading, we are engaged in purely intellectual work.
The Montessori Method for teaching writing prepares the way for reading.
Writing prepares a child for interpreting mechanically the combined sounds of the letters which compose the word which he sees written. A child can read the sounds of the words.
Writing helps a child physiologically and reading helps him socially.
Working in the areas of Practical Life Exercises and Sensorial Education the child is prepared generally and specifically for writing and reading.
