Something I hear every year at open houses and parent events: “I’ve heard that Montessori students can read before they reach kindergarten.” My response is always “No guarantees. Children learn at the pace they are meant to. Some children will be reading storybooks by the time they leave here- some will be on their phonetic letter sounds. It all depends on the child.” Now…that being said…here are photos of a few of my students reading- from ages 3 to 5. So proud of them. More to come.
