Grammar Materials - By Maria Montessori


From Volume 2 of The Advanced Montessori Method: The Montessori Elementary Material:
The study of grammar has finally been arranged in a methodical series of exercises and the material has been prepared after careful and rigid experiment.
Those who read this method will get a clear idea of the teacher's task.
  • She has a material ready for use. 
  • She need not bother to compose a single sentence nor to consult a single program. 
  • The objects at her disposal contain all that is necessary. 
  • She need know simply where they are and how they are to be used. 
The lessons which she must give are so simple, and require so few words, that they become lessons rather of gestures and action than of words. 


She goes on to describe the joyful experience that grammar exercises become.
