Thank you for your interest in Teaching Letter & Numbers: Using the Montessori Three Period Lesson! This material will assist you as you help young children learn letter sounds and number recognition.
The pack includes a set of lowercase and uppercase letter cards and 0-10 number cards for printing on card stock and cutting apart. Focus on the lowercase letters first, since they are the letters seen most frequently in print.
You may wish to make tactile letters and numbers by tracing over the letters/numbers with dimensional fabric paint and letting them dry completely overnight.
Also provided is a teacher/parent guide to using Maria Montessori's Three Period (or Step) Lesson when teaching letter-sound association and number recognition. I have included a few simple games which I have found helpful in making the learning process more fun and engaging for the child.
I have included Letter & Number Writing Practice Strips/Booklets as part of this product. The file includes dotted letter and number writing strips for each letter of the alphabet (as well as numbers from 0-10. If the child is interested in writing practice for the letters or numbers he/she has learned, provide him/her the appropriate Writing Practice Strips.
I hope you find this product helpful!
With much gratitude,
