Below are some of the home practice learning materials for teaching children from age 3+ to 6 years old.
We blend whole brain (previously known as “right brain”) and Montessori methods to achieve optimal learning outcome. That is, whole brain learning materials can be used in a more Montessori way, and Montessori materials can also be used in a more whole brain way. To find out how, you may join my signature online workshop here*.
I started reading and speed-reading the books to my babies when they were little so that they could get the flow of language. At around 3 years old, they started reciting the stories.
We’ve personally used the materials mentioned below except:
- “Base ten set”, where we used Montessori beads instead
- Floppy’s Phonics, where we used the previous edition
The list is non-exhaustive and would be updated over time.
