Learning Letters

with Cathie Perolman's Color Coded Sound Games


Do your students need more practice with letters,
but you simply do not have the time to give that many individual lessons?

Do you need developmentally appropriate,
hands-on letter activities that your children
can work on without you?

In this workshop, we will take a look at how to introduce the Montessori Sandpaper Letters and set up a system that will encourage students to continue practicing letters without needing the presence of an adult.

We will use a letter grouping and color coding system created by Cathie Perolman. Included in the workshop are all the printables you will need to successfully implement this program in your own class.

Video run time: 65 minutes.

Presented by Seemi Abdullah

Who is this course for?

Is this course suitable for beginners?
Yes! This is an introductory level workshop and Montessori training is not a prerequisite.
Is this a live workshop?
No. This is a pre-recorded video presentation. You can view this video multiple times at your convenience. You have access for one full year.
Will I receive a Certificate of Attendance?
You can get a certificate of attendance for ONE HOUR by request. You will need to fill out a feedback form. You will receive a PDF certificate via email. We recommend confirming with your local licensing agency prior to registering if you are relying on having the certificate approved. Read more about certificates of attendance HERE.
What is the difference between the School registration and the Individual registration?
