The Montessori booklets for kids are a collection of short, interesting and reality-based little books to stimulate interest in reading and start reading with confidence.
How were they born?
When Oliver and Emily started reading, I noticed that they got frustrated with long sentences and sometimes they didn't even try if they saw an entire paragraph: they love books, but that frustration often made them put them down.
So I started creating short little books of topics that interested them: each one had one sentence per page, a real photo and a label to read (just being able to read the label was a great satisfaction!).
They were so successful that I decided to make them available to all children!
How do we use them?
Sometimes we print them and sometimes we read them on our tablet, whatever is more accessible in our campervan Elliot (ah right, do you know that we're full-time travellers and we homeschool?).
Now that I have them here, in my personal area on La Tela, I always have them all with me and every occasion is great to get some reading done! Is that a snail? Let's take out our little book and read it!
What do you find inside?
I like to offer the La Tela community what I would like to receive myself. Inside you will find:
- The book in English to read on the device
- The book in English in PDF format for printing
- The book in other languages (Italian and Spanish) whenever it's translated. If I translate it for my kids, you'll get it too!
- A mini guide on how to approach Montessori-style reading and writing
