DIY First Writing Materials

There are infinite ways to make the first writing attempts fun for children. Most children in Montessori schools learn reading through writing. Here is some inspiration!

FIRST WRITING PROJECTS WITH COLLAGES
Prepare paper, scissors and glue. Always let your child have a separate set of tools and paper.

Find beautiful simple pictures, best with one object only. This is a used envelope with cute animal pictures:

Cut and then glue the pictures on paper. You can start naming/labeling the images right away.

On this picture, we did a project on the distinction between vowels and consonants. We used different colors for each. In Montessori classrooms vowels are red or pink, and consonants are blue.

In this project, we talked about the plural “s”. We highlighted it in green.

You could also label the pics of your last vacation, kindergarten or family meeting. You can make little booklets, just by stapling the sheets together, or make whole in the paper and pull a thread through them.

Try it! Get creative! Use your resources ! It’s fun!
You can post your own projects to inspire others 🙂
Warmly,

  1. Over here, I’ve got two preschoolers who find letters a big, exciting mystery. Yesterday, we created ABC cards. It really started out as a game while we were playing in the garden, and the girls loved it.
