Montessori Phonetic Alphabet Sounds

The Language curriculum in Montessori introduces a phonetic approach before pointing out the names of the letters. Children learn the sounds of each letter in the alphabet through activities that demonstrate pre- reading skills like “find the beginning, middle and ending sounds of pictures or objects.” Later, children learn to blend these letter sounds forming a short vowel word (cat, sun, bat).

I put this video together to refresh your mind on the letter sounds again, so you can reinforce the proper sounds with your child. You can also show your child this video as a visual exercise outside of the classroom. Notice the consonant letters are in pink and the vowels are in blue, it is the same color theme as you would find in most traditional Montessori Language lessons.
