Infants and Language Development

All exercises in the Montessori class are designed to incorporate an element of language. Whether your child is working with sweeping, counting beads, or using the musical bells, your use of language is important.

Focus on succinct phrasing along with rich and precise vocabulary. For example, use the word "thin" to describe something that is thin, rather than using the word "small" as you might be tempted to do because you know your child knows the meaning of the word.
