Phonics Montessori Style

If you've been following us, you'll know that we have been using a mix of Jolly Phonics and the Montessori Pink series to teach DD4 to read. (more about it  here)
Today she finished her first two Jolly Phonics books so we used a great revision game to make sure she had absorbed it all so we can move onto book 3.
I presented her with a basket of objects (all start with one of the following letters from book 1 - s, a, t, i, p, n - we will revise book 2's letters later), wooden letters and sandpaper letters. The object was very simple, she had to correctly group the objects by their first letter (she also chose to sound out the letter each time as well)

She started with s and a

She loved this so much she has requested to do basket 2 tomorrow (Saturday) rather than wait until next week :)

Our oldest is dyslexic and these hands-on methods would've been great.
Great post...we have a big gap between our older crew and our youngest, so I soon will be heading back into the phonics stage.
Great ideas!
