Montessori Learning for ALL: Easy Access of Language And Math

My students need Montessori learning toys to make sure they learn abstract language and math concepts by manipulating concrete objects such as beads, tiles, wooden letters, etc.

My Students

Students in our school come from varied background experiences. Our school is a Pre-K academy that hosts all the early childhood students from our district. Our enrollment accounts currently for 386 students from which 317 receive free lunch. From the student population, 68.91% are African American, 26.17 percent are Latinos or Hispanics, 2.33 percent of two or more races, 1.81% are White, .52% are American Indian or Alaska Natives and .26% Asian.

We are thriving to have a bi-literate and pluri-cultural awareness alongside with the General Education, ESL and STEM programs.

Our school hosts the Bilingual Programs (One and Two way Dual Language), English as a Second Language as well General Education. All students benefit from our Spanish LOTE (Languages other than English) program which includes 50 minutes of Spanish instruction on a weekly basis.

My Project

Maria Montessori understood how knowledge develops in the early years of childhood, specifically concrete objects to illustrate abstract concepts. These materials will allow me to foster a deepen understanding of both Language and Math skills in an engaging way that involve the student's multiple senses.

The letter beads will provide an opportunity for students to first build their names, and learned words in the Spanish language which then may be reviewed utilizing the letter tiles; the colored beads will help students with Math concepts such as counting, sorting by colors, identifying colors as well as making patterns.

The Bananagrams will offer the opportunity for students to review the lessons by building words using the letter tiles. The number counting sticks will help relate counting to the corresponding symbol. Please help me make these materials available for my early childhood scholars so they can equal access of educational opportunities such as these Montessori-like materials. Thank you.
