Do you have a child in your life who suddenly discovered books? Do you want to help guide this child along to reading & writing but he isn’t quite ready yet? This post includes Montessori Pre-Reading Activities for your home and classroom.
Montessori Pre-Reading Activities
#1 – Story Sequence Cards
These cards are a simple honey bee lifecycle sequence but you can take this activity anywhere you’d like. Pre-reading in essence but can easily be applied to math, geography, and life science.
#3 – Small to Large Picture Matching
Easy to create variations to keep the interest of the children alive and well. Pretty straight forward: the same photo in two sizes matching exercise.
#4 – Metal Insets
#5 – Pin Poking
My son in in Montessori lower elementary and still cannot get enough of pin poking. There is terrific variations and extensions involving the metal insets, sensorial, and geography works.
Pink Level Activities
This Montessori Language Initial Sounds Lesson is one of the first lessons in the Pink Level. The goal of the lesson is to recognize initial sounds. In addition, moving left to right in preparation for reading and writing. A child aged 3 to 4, one that has mastered the 1st & 2nd period lessons of the sandpaper letters, is ready for this lesson.
