    Bear is pretty good. We didn't really learn any parts of speech yet – only opportunistically when Anna asked about them.

    It started out quite conversationally while playing with the Farm:) After I explained about nouns, I just kind of kept going and adding the little slips of paper so she could make phrases (dog)….(brown dog)…..(a brown dog)…..(a brown dog jumped)…..etc. So we went from noun to adjective to article to verb just by playing with strips of paper and the plastic animals. When she was comfortable with that then I introduced the symbols. (Just to see how she would respond and do…and since she did well, we kept going).

    Great post! We'll be starting this very soon. She just learned about different kinds of sentences and punctuations. Now she gets excited when she sees a punctuation in a book. I'm realizing that there's so many different ways to cover the same thing. Tomorrow I think we will play punctuation police where she spots all the missing punctuations and puts them in their right places.

    Thanks for this great post. I've been thinking about having the kids work with Montessori grammar symbols. This post was especially helpful. If you ever find that file by Josh Galarza, I'd love to read through it. Thanks for sharing!Liesl
