Children in a Montessori environment learn to write first, before they learn to read. This approach is organic, as children are able to put the letters for the sounds they know together into a word before they are ready to interpret and string together the sounds of a word on a page.

According to the Montessori approach, writing should precede reading. As children learn to write “phonetically”, they start with sounds that form a basis for reading. Later on, a child is able to relate phonetic sounds to specific letters. In the Montessori classroom, kids learn to form words by picking up colorful paper letters from the Montessori alphabet and putting them on the table.

When a child writes, all they need to do is turn sounds into letters. When a child reads, they need to pull apart the letters, turn them into phonetic sounds, and put them back together to make a word. It's a more complicated process. Children in Montessori classrooms often write stories with the movable alphabet long before they can read.

In particular, the Montessori science and geography curricula expand a child’s vocabulary through scientific nomenclature and exposure to different cultures. Circle Time provides opportunities to read books, sing songs, and share stories. In its very structure, Circle Time has a beginning, middle, and an end.

my son is 4 and at a Montessori school. this is his first year. They seem to have a series of things that teach the kids to read. They start with learning the letter sounds and then do this thing called the moveable alphabet. Not sure what comes after that but its truly amazing how much my son has learned in general.

Montessori education is student-led and self-paced but guided, assessed, and enriched by knowledgeable and caring teachers, the leadership of their peers, and a nurturing environment. Within the community of a multi-age classroom—designed to create natural opportunities for independence, citizenship, and accountability—children embrace multi-sensory learning and passionate inquiry.

Most Montessori schools do not assign homework to children below the elementary level. When it is assigned to older children, it rarely involves page after page of busy work; instead, the children are given meaningful, interesting assignments that expand on the topics that they are pursuing in class.

You can read more and see a video of them in my post “Anne Frank and Google Founders Share Montessori Link.” My Montessori school in the 1980s only had children from ages 2½ -5. After that, all the students went on to traditional elementary schools, since there weren’t any Montessori elementary schools in my city.

FAQ
🚸
🚸
Most children learn to read by 6 or 7 years of age. Some children learn at 4 or 5 years of age. Even if a child has a head start, she may not stay ahead once school starts. The other students most likely will catch up during the second or third grade.
🚸
Generally, children begin to babble from around the age of six months and say their first words between ten and 15 months (most start speaking at about 12 months). They then begin to pick up increasing numbers of words and start to combine them into simple sentences after around 18 months.
