Answer
Hi,

The lessons in the link seem quite interesting and good. Go ahead and buy it. The Montessori Method also teaches language using phonetic method. We have some special material to start off the children with sounds of letters and then lead them onto words and listening to sounds in words. Maybe you can help your daughter do the same work from the link on paper. Or, you can have loose alphabets and help her do the words and give the sounds and rules.

Try and look up the internet for how to present the Movable Alphabet - Montessori Method.
