Whether you’re a preschool teacher, homeschooler, or parent in general, there are many different ways you can use Montessori techniques to introduce phonics. I used Montessori methods to easily teach children to read as a Montessori teacher and with my own children.
Today I’m going to share some of the posts I’ve published with DIY Montessori phonics ideas you can use at home or in a classroom. Montessori activities don’t have to be expensive, so you’ll see lots of creative ways to prepare your own activities.
In the posts, you’ll find ideas for presenting Montessori phonics activities as well. While there’s a Montessori language sequence you can follow completely, you can also use Montessori phonics for the beginning phonics activities and then just follow your child’s needs for reading activities later on.

You’ll also find lots of ideas for creating your own Montessori-inspired phonics activities in my language category and in my Montessori-inspired unit studies that you’ll find in my post “Should You Use Unit Studies?” Of course, some of the most important ways to encourage reading are mentioned in my post “How to Help Your Child Treasure Books.” 🙂
