In addition to the online albums, I ordered a few materials. I purchased THIS STENCIL from Alison's Montessori. And I purchased this set of wooden grammar symbols from Caliber Montessori. In future posts I'll be able to show you how we'll use those materials.
The first lesson I gave the boys was to just explain to them that words are classified into various types which we call "parts of speech". Each part of speech has its own special symbol, and we used the stencil to record those symbols in our grammar notebooks. Future lessons will focus specifically on the various parts of speech.
