Free Montessori activities and learning materials for all kids

One of the key elements of Montessori activities is providing your child with the right learning materials. Children learn on their own, but the right material can help them move in the right direction. This is especially true for kindergarten-aged children.

There is not necessarily a specific Montessori kindergarten curriculum like traditional kindergarten. But Montessori education usually begins in preschool, and for many children, kindergarten is the last year of Montessori school. You’ve probably been following philosophy tutorials for years and are already familiar with the idea of ​​self-paced learning.
At Montessori Kindergarten, children are committed to critical thinking, handwriting, and counting

In Montessori school, kids learn the basics of these important skills they will use throughout their lives.

Language and classification cards

Most children have a basic understanding of how letters work together to create words. However, there are additional learning materials that can help to enhance this understanding for younger children. Language and classification cards are a great tool to help kids learn the names of different objects in their world. Although Montessori school philosophy believes that real-life experience is important, we know that it isn’t always possible for a child to experience everything in person.

Language cards are great for learning the vocabulary of different objects. They include three parts:

  • cards with only the name of the object,
  • cards with only the picture or the object,
  • cards with both the name and the picture of the object. These cards can help your child learn the name of objects and also help them learn another language.

With these cards, you can help your child learn the name of objects, as well as introduce them to new vocabulary in another language. The three-part cards from Maitri Learning are a great way to teach your child the names of many non-living things, like rocks and cookies. If you want to tailor the learning to your child, you can also make your own cards.

Classification cards: Instructions

Cut out the cards so that you have pictures with labels, pictures without labels, and labels.
There are many ways to use these cards. Some examples:
● Use picture cards as flashcards.
● Let kids find items around the house that match the cards, such as food items.
● Use picture cards with labels to play a game as I spy. For E.g. “I spy with my little eye a food item that starts with the sound “s”.
● Let kids match the picture cards with the labels, using the pictures with labels as control cards to
check their own work.
