Acts of Love

Encouraging your children to read begins early in life! Here's a simple activity you can do with your children to build their confidence in reading. 

Reading at any age should be enjoyable and purposeful. 

Montessori gave children "command cards" to practice reading. This gave the children an action to perform so that the reading was not merely enjoyable but purposeful too.  This game is highly motivating to the pre-reader and the emergent reader alike.  For Valentine's Day, part of our family celebration will be going on a Valentine hunt today around our house.  

Naturally, they will all be in the spirit of love!

If you have a non reader, read it to/with them!

Kiss your ___________.
