Writing Lab (Montessori)
Learn to read and write with fun, word-building houses!
Children can start by putting the 18 word puzzles together in the little houses, then using the moveable letters they can spell out each word in the space below, and finally they can practise writing the word themselves with the erasable pen provided. The game is inspired by the Montessori three-period method.
