Making Montessori classroom materials (Flowers, Hand Tools, Vegetables and Musical Instruments) 3-part Cards and Body Part cards

I spent part of yesterday afternoon finishing off some of these Montessori classroom materials. I have already made up quite a few 3-Part Card sets now, so have been able to find ways of getting them done a lot quicker as it’s definitely time consuming.

This lot, was already printed for me and all I needed to do was laminate them, cut them out, round off the edges (as they are sharp) and then sort them into their sets (two sets of each). I have found it is much easier to print, laminate and then cut rather than print, cut, laminate and then re-cut. Really, I just work with whatever work I am handed over to complete. Sometimes I do all the work from start to finish myself at home, other times I take over work that another parent has started or I will work together with another parent at school or at someone else’s house. Either way it’s nice to help out.

I made up several 3-Part Cards sets for my daughter when she was younger and I did laminate them, but given the choice to re-do it (for home use), I would rather paste the images and words onto thicker card than use plastic to laminate them, really to avoid the plastic wastage. These cards are for classroom use (for 3-6 year old’s), so the preference has been made to have them laminated. All of these printable sets have come from The Montessori Print Shop online.

For example- These flower 3-Part Cards needed to be laminated, cut out and edges rounded.

Body Part cards (not 3-Part Cards). There are two sets of each so you can match picture to picture or picture to word.

I will have a post up towards the end of the week with some Musical Instrument and Vegetable 3-Part Cards.
