In Montessori primary classrooms, children as young as 4 or 5-years-old may receive lessons in the functions of parts of speech. I designed this Noun Box as a first introduction to grammar, appropriate for lessons within a Montessori classroom or your home. Even very young children are curious about our language and the function of words; this lessons capitalizes upon a child's sensitive period for language-acquisition.

Maria Montessori, a pioneer in early childhood education, associated different shapes with each of the parts of speech. Nouns (persons, places, or things) are conceptualized as black, stable pyramids; while verbs (actions) are conceptualized as red, active balls. In two-dimensional form, a noun is a black triangle, and a verb is a red circle. All words that modify a noun are also triangles; for example, an adjective is a medium-sized, medium-blue triangle, while an article is a small, light-blue triangle. Likewise, adverbs are small, orange circles.

Although I have developed a complete set of "Parts of Speech" boxes (including noun, adjective, article, verb, adverb, preposition, and conjunction), the Noun Box is an ideal "first lesson" in this series. In the classroom, I traditionally follow the lesson on nouns with a lesson on verbs.

Included in this set:
Square Paper Board Boxx with a Painted Black Triangle Top (measuring just under 4.5" x 4.5" wide and just over 2.25" tall);
10 Cards (including examples of people, places, and things);
10 Objects (that can be labeled with the cards);
10 Black Felt Triangles (that label each noun included)

Please note: Materials are an original design and cannot be reproduced for sale. Also, the items in your box may vary slightly from those shown. For example, the hair clip may be a paper clip, or the bride, cat, or crayon may be a different color or design than in the photographs above. However, please be assured that the quality of all items will be consistent with those shown! :)
ALSO, IN CONTRAST TO THE IMAGE WHICH PICTURES A CLOWN AS ONE OF THE OBJECTS IN THE BOX, YOUR BOX WILL INSTEAD CONTAIN A ROCK AS ONE OF THE OBJECTS. ALSO, THE TAGS ARE NOW UN-LAMINATED. I WOULD SUGGEST LAMINATING THEM BEFORE BEING USED HEAVILY IN THE CLASSROOM! DUE TO THE LOSS OF A SUPPLIER, THE BOX INCLUDED IN THIS SET IS NOW A SQUARE PAPER BOARD BOX (AS PICTURED IN THE LAST PICTURE ABOVE).
