Montessori teachers use oral language activities to share culture, build rapport, and prepare children for literacy. With limited to oral language children have difficulty expressing themselves verbally and on paper.
Throughout the day children may gather in small groups to hear a true story, have a conversation, play a language game, recite a poem, or sing a song. All of these activties are fun and bring joy! They are also useful in building and reinforcing language in their growing minds.
