...LANGUAGE ARTS RATIONALE Language is the most important feature that separates humankind from animals. Humankind boasts of being able to communicate effectively with each other and also acts as an insight to the development of a child. Even though a child does not need to be taught how to speak, they must be exposed to the language for them to learn. A child starts learning language from infancy and acquires significant growth in the first few years. A rich language environment is crucial for positive language development in children and it is a vital component as a child enters the classroom (Montessori, 1947). A child learns to listen by hearing the various sounds that the adults... MARIA MONTESSORI...
