Grammar: The farm
Recently Little-N has been working with the schools 'farm game'. I am really amazed that he knows all about verbs, nouns, adjective and articles at such a young age. I was playing a game with him trying to catch him out, 'Is laptop a verb', 'Is fat a noun'... and he really knows what is what. This is what I love about the Montessori language materials, they make very very complex concepts so so easy! I'm also taking the grammar materials at my 6-9yrs training course, Maria Montessori had a reason for everything! Ever wonder why she made nouns black and verbs red?? Nouns are black because nouns are the oldest part of language, as old as black coal that takes many many long years to form. Verbs are red because she likened them to the sun that is always fiery and full of energy. Each part of speech actually has a story that you tell when u reintroduce it in the 6-9yrs class.
