Welcome to Cathie Perolman Educational Materials
These materials have been created by experienced Montessori-trained teachers. Our goal is to help bring quality materials into your classroom easily, efficiently and affordably. All of these materials follow Montessori principles and have been used extensively in Montessori classrooms. They will be fun for you and your students and will inspire your children just as they have delighted ours.
From the basic sequential reading materials to those working with more advanced academic skills, you can create all of these materials from your own computer by simply printing, cutting and laminating what you need.
The Color Coded Sound Games Program has changed my classroom forever. Students love progressing through the different colors and feel accomplished as they approach each new color. It is a very intentional, thorough and engaging way for students to practice and learn letter sounds. Not only have the children gained a deep understanding of letter/sound correspondence, but they have also practiced working in cooperative groups and had the opportunity to be responsible for tracking their own progress through a student contract.
The Basic Reading Skills CD lets me print out exactly the materials I need. Once the activities are made, they are reusable so I am not recreating them each year. Children take responsibility for choosing, completing, recording and replacing each activity so there is virtually no maintenance for the teacher. Children love the color coding aspect and take great joy in moving through the colors of their particular level. This gives children, parents and teachers a frame of reference for celebrating small accomplishments and encouraging children to achieve more.
