If you don't want to adjust the colors and height then please remove the reference to Montessori materials, you're making me sad.
I choose this rating because the letters did save me a lot of time [I used to make them myself.].
They are a tremendous didactic help for people using the phonetic system. English is not such a system, but phonetics give the student an upper hand in learning to read and write. They will breeze the foreign language reading instruction too.
Maria Montessori was the first lady doctor to graduate in Italy. She was an MD dedicated to mentally retarded students, and became the first teacher for the Special Ed. professionals. From her medical background she knew that the sensory memory was a long lasting one, and the tactile letters she devised were a great memory helper for her students. What you can do with your hands stays with you for the rest of your life. Attention should be placed on where and how sounds are formed in your mouth.
What prolongs the reading time instruction is the presentation of the alphabetic sounds BEFORE the phonetic sounds.
This practice confuses the students, who cannot make sense of a [alphabetic sound] and apple [phonetic a sound]
This erroneous strategy [alphabetic sound representation with subsequent slavery based on spelling] is responsible for the long time spending in reading instruction.
Montessori students write first [on sand boxes] and then read [first with the help of sand letters.]
[See also the presentation of Montessori numbers. and the chain of numbers.]
After a year of instruction with her specialized material, the mentally retarded students performed better than the regular students at the state exam. Montessori deducted that there was something terribly wrong in the way regular education was conducted. She
attributed this failure to the reasons stated above.
Any child should be thought reading with the help of the Montessori letters.
