Montessori 3-part cards were created by Dr Montessori. She was a pioneer in education and found that children learned better by doing which also helped children gain confidence in being self motivated.
What Are 3-Part Cards
3-part cards are the perfect way to introduce a new topic to a child, whether it is wildlife or transportation. It not only helps a child work on their vocabulary skills but also on their identification skills.
There are three different cards to this game:
The first is the image card – In this set it shows the illustration of a planet.
The second is the vocabulary card – In this set it has the name of a planet.
The third is the control card – This card has both the name of the planet and the illustration, this enables the child to check that they are correct.
To make your own set is quite simple to do.
Printed sheet of cards (You can order these planet ones HERE)
Scissors or paper trimmer
Cut out the control cards, vocabulary cards, and image cards, to the right size.
Place neatly onto laminating pouch.
Once laminated cut neatly with scissors or paper trimmer, making sure to round off the edges.
Play the game.
By laminating the cards they will last for many years. Once your child has completed learning with them then you can pass them onto other families or even schools.
You can also do other activities with the cards. For example my daughter then organised the planets, sun, and moon into size order.
I hope you enjoyed learning about Montessori 3-part cards.
