Free Kite Printables and Montessori-Inspired Kite Activities

April is National Kite Month! It’s the 15th of the month today, and I have a new post at PreK + K Sharing … especially for National Kite Month! Here, I’m sharing the links to free kite printables for preschoolers through 1st graders. At PreK + K Sharing, I show how I used the printables to prepare Montessori-inspired kite activities. I also have links to other posts with additional ideas and presentations. Free Printables Featured in the Pictured Kite Activities at PreK + K Sharing Prek Letter K Printables from Confessions of Homeschooler Romping and Roaring Letter K Pack from 3 Dinosaurs Cut and Glue Kite from 1+1+1=1 Flying a Kite Word Family from Really Roper at Teachers Notebook Carp Kite Craft (for Children’s Day in Japan May 5) from Activity Village Free Kite Printables (of all kinds) for Preschoolers-First Graders Kite Printables from 1+1+1=1 Kite Activities from Making Learning […]

Montessori Monday – Free Printables for Montessori Homeschools and Preschools

I love printables because they make creating attractive-looking activities easy. Just looking at the printables often gives me ideas of activities I can prepare. If you teach in a Montessori-inspired homeschool, preschool, or co-op, there are many places to find printables, including free printables. Whether you’re a Montessori purist or a progressive Montessorian, you can use printables to make your life much easier. Here are some ideas of places to check for free printables. Free Printables for Montessori Purists and Progressive Montessorians For any Montessori approach to teaching, be sure to check out the resources in my “Free Montessori Materials Online” post. Follow our Living Montessori Now Facebook page for my Free Printable of the Day. Not all the free printables I feature are specifically Montessori printables, but I often share free Montessori printables there. You can often find the latest ones published if you follow the Living Montessori Now […]

Montessori Continent Activities for North America (or Applied to Other Continents)

I love activities that bring interest to the study of geography, and I had a lot of fun putting together a post of continent activities using the North America continent materials from Montessori Print Shop. Although I prepared materials for a study of North America, the ideas could easily be applied to other continents. Disclosure: I was given the Geography Bundles from Montessori Print Shop to facilitate my review. My opinions are honest and my own. This post also contains affiliate links. Montessori Print Shop Geography Bundles (Six Continent Bundles + Antarctica Geography Folder and Antarctic Animals, World Pin Maps Bundle, Pin Map Flags Bundle) Sample of the North America Geography Bundle All 3-Part Cards come with pictures with labels, pictures without labels, and labels. The North America Bundle includes: North America Geography Folder (20 images) North American Animals 3-Part Cards (17 images) North American Flags 3-Part Cards (41) North […]

Montessori-Inspired Easter Egg Sound Shakers for Babies and Toddlers

I love using plastic Easter eggs to create Montessori-inspired sound sets. I have a DIY Easter egg sound set for preschoolers. Today, I’m sharing an idea for inexpensive DIY Montessori-inspired Easter egg sound shakers for babies and toddlers. Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links (at no cost to you). Montessori Sound Cylinders To learn more about Montessori sound cylinders and how to present them, check out my DIY Montessori Sound Cylinders post. I used a number of the same Montessori techniques to prepare an Easter egg sound set for babies and toddlers. In a traditional Montessori sound box, you’ll find six sound cylinders with red tops and six sound cylinders with blue tops. For this activity, I used matching pairs (although three pairs with three blue eggs that each matched one of three lavender eggs). DIY sound cylinders can be prepared using a variety of materials. For this activity, I […]

Montessori Monday – Easter Tree Sorting, Math, and Decorating Activity

Today’s activity has sentimental value for me. My husband and I were given the Easter tree from my mother-in-law years ago when our kids were little. I’ve saved it through a number of moves, and I’ve used it here to create a Montessori-inspired Easter activity for preschoolers. Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links (at no cost to you). Montessori-Inspired Easter Tree Sorting, Math, and Decorating Activity Decorating an Easter tree can be a popular practical life activity similar to a Montessori Christmas tree activity. I’ve added some additional steps today to work on extra skills along with the decorating-a-tree activity. You can purchase an Easter tree from a craft store or another store, or you can easily make one using a branch you find on a nature hike. I found the small Easter eggs at Michaels craft store. I also found the bunny egg tongs at Michaels. The bunny tongs […]

Thank you for the red ribbon, Deb! I'm fairly new to actually participating here, so I'm a  little nervous (read: humbled by the depth of knowledge and experience of other members). I'm a big fan of your site, too. =)

 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
