Maria Montessori said that “Language is an instrument of collective thought.” At this age, children are absorbing language from their environment at a phenomenal rate. In the Montessori environment, we focus on specific vocabulary enrichment. The materials we use for developing and enriching language are:

  • The adults as models
  •  Objects: real objects for concrete sensorial experience.
  •  Replicas: objects used when the real objects are difficult to bring into the classroom.
  • Objects with cards: 3 dimensional objects matched to 2 dimensional pictures.
  • Classified cards
  • Books
  • Poetry and songs
  • Self expression: listen to the children and allow them to talk to us.
  • Question Exercises: this is the process of asking a child or group of children questions with the intention of helping the child/ren organize thoughts around a single concept.
