“Close your eyes and imagine this: You step out of your daily life and into a favorite storybook. You’re back with “The Farmer in the Dell,” standing on a beautiful green pasture. All around you roam the wonderful farm animals you’ve loved since you were a child: the sheep, the cows, the chickens, and more, all living in harmony. You feel a sense of tranquility around you and even inside you.”
The Peaceable Farm
is a collection of illustrative word function and word study activities based on the Montessori grammar scheme. These are shelf-ready card sets that follow the color coding of the Montessori grammar symbols; and include original illustrations of life in the farmyard, farm meadow, and farm orchard. The illustrations convey the peacefulness and beauty of the family farm or farm sanctuary.
Our literature base – The Peaceable Farm is reminiscent of farm life as portrayed in many children’s books. The read alouds suggested for this collection give specific examples of grammar concepts, while providing a meaningful context for learning.
