The Montessori Phonetic Reading Blocks are perfect for the beginning reader. Your child will delight in twisting the blocks to discover new letters and lots of words, especially ones that rhyme. A great way to transition from learning letter sounds to actual blending and reading!

The Silent E Reading Blocks are great for introducing long vowels to young readers. Once your child has mastered reading the three-letter Phonetic Reading Blocks, introduce these Silent E blocks. Your child will love twisting the end block to reveal and hide the Silent E to create words with both short and long vowel sounds. Easy to use, first show the child a 3 letter phonetic word of your choice. Have the child read the word. Then, twist the block so that the "e" appears at the end of the word. Explain to the child that in this word, the "e" does not make a sound, but it does have a job. Tell the child that the "e" makes the vowel say it's name. For example: man becomes mane, fad becomes fade and so on. Practice reading the new word together. Show the child another word with the same vowel. Continue reading words in this manner, helping when necessary and eventually moving on to other vowels.

The Phonetic Word 3-Part Cards are a great addition to the Montessori Phonetic Reading Blocks. Introduce vocabulary, play memory, match picture to picture, word to word and word to picture cards. Children can also play matching games by drawing cards and twisting the blocks to match or even make their own picture book. These cards feature 15 different consonant, vowel, consonant (CVC) words, all of which can be found on the Phonetic Reading Blocks. Each word includes three parts: 1 picture card, 1 word card, and 1 control card with the picture and word together for a total of 45 cards. The cards are printed on 100-lb. Premium, High Gloss, Recycled Card Stock and then cut with the corners rounded. Lamination is available and recommended for classroom use.

The reading blocks are made to replace or compliment your Montessori Three Letter Phonetic Word Cards and your Montessori Silent E Word Cards. The letters are written in lower case d'nealian print with red consonants and blue vowels, in order to match the rest of your Montessori Language materials. A must have language work for the Montessori 3-6 year old classroom.
