My Family 3-Part Montessori Cards


One big component of Montessori is the use of 3 Part Cards.  Three Part Cards can be use in a variety of ways, and I decided to make a  set of cards for Little Sis during our All About Me Preschool themed week, which happened a couple months ago.  They were actually pretty fun to make; my first try at 3 Part Cards was when I made some 3 Part French Animal Name Cards for Big Brother.

To make the "My Family" 3 Part Montessori Cards, I found a very easy template to use from Titus2Homemaker.

Simply save the template to your computer and work in the picture and words using Microsoft Word.

Family 3 Part Montessori Cards

I made up a 3 part card for our immediate family: mom, dad, Big Brother, Little Sis, Baby Brother, and Baby.

I placed the 3 Part Card components and some alphabet stickers in a tray for easy access {Random Blurb: I just LOVE Melissa & Doug toy containers!  Save them-- they make great trays for sorting activities, etc!}

Matching, Spelling, and Literacy were all wrapped up in this very personal activity.

Once Little Sis matched up the cards, I encouraged her to spell out the words using the puzzle stickers.

Along with our 3 Part "My Family" cards, our plans the week consisted of:
  • Math: Body part counting 
  • Fine Motor: Duplo Block Puzzle   
  • For Fun: I had a blank body template printed so that she could draw a self portrait of herself, but that was left untouched.  I also had a tray of emotion faces and a mirror, but that was not played with either.... well, the mirror was, but the original intent of the activity didn't happen!
I'd love for you to follow along so you never miss out on one of our fun activities we share at School Time Snippets!
