This area allows the child to specifically work on communication skills. It helps the child to learn how to put words to his ideas and feelings. In the language area the child works on encoding and decoding. Montessori’s approach to language is that writing should precede reading. The sequence of the language area is oral language, writing and reading. The language area offers the child a well planned sequence of activities to learn two important life skills- writing and reading. Two important ingredients of the sequence are the sandpaper letters and movable alphabet. We have an extensive language program with a plethora of language arts didactics, library and learning/teaching games to facilitate language/writing and reading skill development.
