These lesson plans are to be used with the Montessori Metal Insets and includes:
- full written instructions for 10 lessons
- 10 diagrams (1 of each lesson complete)
The Montessori metal insets help the child acquire control of the writing instrument and prepare the hand for the action of writing. This action should be deliberate and thoughtful.
The metal insets should not be used until a child is capable of holding a writing instrument; this exercise is not meant to teach a child how to hold an instrument. It is meant to refine their ability to move the writing instrument with precision and ease.
You can make your own metal insets using thick cardstock, firm foamboard, or other suitable materials. We carry the Metal Insets Shape Outlines here: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Metal-Insets-Shape-Outlines-1197546
