Paper grammar symbols replacement set – Nienhuis Montessori
A replacement set containing 100 each of the 15 different Nienhuis Montessori grammar symbols made from glossy coloured paper.
The Nienhuis Montessori paper grammar symbols each represent a specific part of speech. The grammar symbols help to sensorially reinforce each part of speech and are used to lay above sentences. The grammar symbols are made from glossy coloured paper.
As children respond well to shapes and colours, the grammar symbols were introduced by Dr. Maria Montessori as a system of coloured shapes with each shape and colour having a meaning.
The grammar symbols are generally introduced to children to work with from the age of six as by then the child has learned to read but is still interested in words, their functions as well as meanings. A focus on deeper meaning is applied with the intent of academic understanding in elementary lessons.
However, some sensorial lessons can be proposed to the child starting at the age of three (to six) in simple introductory lessons, meant to evoke imaginary or a certain sense (feeling) and not to reinforce the child to understand the concept of grammar in an academic way. This can be done with for example the Nienhuis Montessori 3D wooden grammar symbols.
A wooden box with 15 compartments and lid to store the paper grammar symbols is also available separately.
This material is suitable for children aged 6 years and up.
