Free Montessori Nocturnal Animal 3-Part Cards in English and in French
Realistic Animal Photos Version of this Printable
As night falls earlier, we are out during darkness, and may see nocturnal creatures. Prior to Halloween, take the children outside to enjoy the wonders of nature at night so they will be more comfortable that night. Help them enjoy the beauty of the evening. Animal costumes are popular at Halloween, also, as the cutie in the This picture. Take advantage of such opportunities and explain to the children information like when dressed as mice, they are dressed like nocturnal animals. Because the child pictured is being raised as a French/English bilingual child, this printable is in both languages.
The cards are in English and French, in entirely separate sections.
So, I learned many homeschools and Montessori teachers prefer realistic pictures on 3-part cards, so I have made a free printable with real photos. The free preview will also open at the link for the free printable.
Here are some photos of the materials in use. First, the 3-part cards with realistic animal photos in English on a Montessori rug. The rug is used to help define work space for children in Montessori classrooms. There are more pictures about using these rugs at this post by Living Montessori Now.
Placing the cards on a tray in small containers helps the children more easily work with the cards, as the materials are organized ahead of time for them to use.
Next, is a photo of the French 3-part cards in use on a Montessori rug.
And now a photo of the French 3 part cards with animal photos in use on a tray.
