4.0 out of 5 stars This is Montessori teaching at its best., 29 Dec. 2000
By 
This review is from: Montessori Read & Write: A parent's guide to literacy for children (Paperback)
Lyn Lawrence has captured the essence of Language development in children as discovered by Maria Montessori. It is an excellent reference source for teachers as well as parents. The step by step sequence of phonic and sandletters is easy to use .The exercises in the book require little use of expensive learning aids. We use this book frequently in our school in Buckinghamshire. Our set of pupils who have now left to go on to Junior schools, all left with an above average reading age. Lyn follows the essence of Montessori simply,but the spirituality shines through. A good, easily resourced educational book. Thank you Lyn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for newcomers to the Montessori method, 24 Aug. 2011

This review is from: Montessori Read & Write: A parent's guide to literacy for children (Paperback)
I found this book while browsing through my local library and decided to have a look at it. It's wonderful! If you are, like me, new to the Montessori method, it gives you a great overview over the founder, the idea behind the concept and the way it is taught. You'll find insights into the way your child learns as well as exercises (more like games of course) which you can do with your child from as young as 2 1/2. I especially loved how the book makes you aware of the little things, like providing your child with a clear surface so he/she can focus on the play itself and not get distracted, and making your child aware of the signs in the supermarket so she gets to know the shape of letters.
I now ordered the book, I think that says it all!

5.0 out of 5 stars A storehouse of practical ideas., 14 July 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Montessori Read & Write: A parent's guide to literacy for children (Paperback)
There is a great need for the Montessori approach to literacy to be more widely known and implemented. Now, at last, we have an effective tool for this in Montessori Read and Write, A Parent's Guide to Early Literacy for Children. This how-to-do-it, step-by-step guide to the Montessori way of promoting early literacy is what we have all been waiting for.
As a resource book Montessori Read and Write will prove indispensible, not only to parents, but to anyone running a Montessori classroom, because the activities suggested are easy to understand and set up, and do not require any extensive, or expensive investment in specialised equipment. For students, too, this book should be essential reading because of the masterful way in which language development for children is interwoven with a presentation of the Montessori approach and useful references at the end.
With such a storehouse of practical ideas at her disposal, many of which have been included in the book, Mrs Lawrence is to be commended for having the wisdom to focus at length on the underlying factors that predispose pre-school children to develop, not just the ability to read and write, but the desire, the urge to become readers and writers, and to have highlighted the key role that parents must play in assisting this process from birth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational book!, 28 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Montessori Read & Write: A parent's guide to literacy for children (Paperback)
This is a gem of a book, inspiring parents to be more proactive about helping their child get ready for reading and writing. The chapters are:

Introduction
About Maria Montessori
1. What you should know about your child
2. Developing a Montessori Approach
3. Preparing the way
4. First steps towards reading and writing
5. Learning to write the letters
6. Starting to read
7. Reading for meaning
8. Creative and accurate writing
9. Templates and other resources

Lynne gives plenty of guidance about approaching reading and writing in a fun, game-based way, that will inspire children to write and read instead of intimidating them. There are loads of games to play; this is a parent-intensive approach, but worth it! Ways of strengthening hand/fingers for good handwriting are introduced very early on in this method.

5.0 out of 5 stars very informative, 3 Jun. 2014

This review is from: Montessori Read & Write: A parent's guide to literacy for children (Paperback)
Very much what I believe. How children can read and write successfully before the age of 7. It's a great story how a very clever lady could see through the problem of teaching children in their early years.
