Sequence of lessons using the Montessori Pink Scheme Kit

The Montessori Phonics Pink Scheme kit is a complete ready-to-teach kit for children who are ready to progress from single letter sounds to 3-letter phonetic words.

This is the lesson sequence using the Montessori Phonics Pink Scheme Kit :

(1) 5 pink object boxes

(2) 5 pink picture boxes

(3) 5 picture sheets and cards

(4) 5 word lists

(5) 10 reading cards (phrases)

(6) 10 attached reading cards (sentences)

(7) 10 detached reading cards (sentences)

(8) 5 word charts

The Pink Object Boxes are labelled Box 1 to Box 5 for a reason. Each box number on each box represents the middle vowel sound used in the object boxes. Each box consists of 6 objects of a certain middle vowel sound. 

For example :

Box 1 - Contains objects with middle vowel /a/ sound like in the objects rat, can, mat, etc

Box 2 - Contains objects with middle vowel /e/ sound, like in the objects peg, hen, jet, etc

Box 3 - Contains objects with middle vowel /i/ sound like in the objects pin, bib, pig, etc

Box 4 - Contains objects with middle vowel /o/ sound like in the objects pot, rod, mop, etc

Box 5 - Contains objects with middle vowel /u/ sound like in the objects bug, gun, tub, etc

In executing lessons, start from Box 1 onwards. Regardless for word building.. or working with object boxes with corresponding word cards or picture boxes.

Ideally, children should only be able to move on to the following box(es), AFTER  they can confidently read or blend the words for each box.

*Note* : Prior to using the Pink Object Boxes, I highly recommend that educators and parents work on word building! Very effective. Results may seem to unfold a tad slower, however, once this skill is imparted and honed, the acceleration for reading is rapid. 👍

Object Boxes are the bigger ones. These object boxes are used first in the pink scheme for word building followed by…..
....... reading n matching corresponding word cards to the objects arranged on a table or work mat.

The lessons for Pink Object Boxes & Pink Picture Boxes, can be used with or without the LMA.

Likewise for pink picture boxes. Attempt from Picture Box 1 onwards, right up to Picture Box 5. The picture cards in the picture boxes can also be used as/for word building activities if you own a set of the Large Movable Alphabets (LMA). If not, you can blend the 3-letter sounds on each word card to match to the objects arranged on the mat.

Box 1 - Contains pictures with middle vowel /a/ sound like in the pictures; pan, tag, lad, etc

Box 2 - Contains pictures of things with middle vowel /e/ sound like in the pictures; keg, red, ten, etc

Box 3 - Contains pictures of things with middle vowel /i/ sound like in the pictures; wig, six, rib, etc

Box 4 - Contains pictures of things with middle vowel /o/ sound like in the pictures; dog, rod, mop, etc

Box 5 - Contains pictures of things with middle vowel /u/ sound like in the pictures; mug, bun, bud, etc
