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.
