Over the last couple of days I have put together some Insect and Clothing 3-Part Cards for my children’s Montessori School, Children’s House. Helping to make classroom materials is one of the many ways a parent or caregiver can help out. I try to help whenever I can find the time. At the moment I am helping to make classroom materials at home, for both of my children’s classrooms and also aim to volunteer fortnightly to help the children in the classroom with Language work including reading.
I made two sets each of the Insect and clothing 3-Part cards. When making classroom materials like this, I am given everything I need to make them up.These Insect 3-Part Cards include- bee, fly, cockroach, butterfly, damselfly, ladybug, walking stick, beetle, weevil, shield bug, grasshopper, aphids, mantid and earwig.
I used clothing cards with labels like these when my children were younger to attach to their clothing baskets in their wardrobe. Picture cards with labels are helpful for pre-readers and early-readers.
These clothing labels include- winter hat, shorts, swim shorts, T-shirt, jeans, skirt, pajamas, underwear, raincoat, jacket, suit, dress, swim suit, mittens, vest, sweater, sweatshirt, snowsuit, sun hat, robe, scarf, boots, running shoes, socks, nightgown and slippers.
