CURRICULUM: THE LANGUAGE AREA
The ages from three to six years old are a sensitive period for language achievement. The language curriculum includes oral language activities, pre-reading work, writing and reading comprehension.

Initial sounds are introduced through Sandpaper Letters and Matching Objects. After the children learn a few sounds, they are then introduced to blending exercises through moveable alphabets. The Metal Insets are used to refine pencil control and help to improve writing skills.

The objective of oral language activities includes the development of listening skills, comprehension and vocabulary. Once the children are able to blend three letter words that include a short vowel, they are then introduced to the SRA reader book series in conjunction with a matching workbook.

"Knowledge can best be given where there is eagerness to learn, so this is the period when the seed of everything can be sewn. The child's mind being like a fertile field, ready to receive what will germinate into knowledge."  Maria Montessori
