Montessori-Inspired 3-part Cards for the Safari Ltd US SYMBOLS toob

Every country is known for its national monuments.  Italy has the Colosseum.  China has the Great Wall.  Easter Island has the big heads.  All of these places can be found in the Safari World Landmarks toobs (matching cards coming soon).

Today, though, we're not talking about the world.  We're talking about the USA.  Just in time for the 4th of July, I redid the printable matching cards for the Safari Ltd. US Symbols toob.  It was a big challenge for me, as I have only been to Mount Rushmore.  Yikes!  As a homeschool family, we have to fix that!

After you've put in your email address into the box, check your inbox for the confirmation email.  Open the email and click on the button to confirm your subscription.  You'll get a second email with a link to download the printable.  Download the PDF from the protected page.  Print the first two pages twice and laminate them for long-term use.  Then, cut out all the cards and separate them by sets.  Leave one set of cards exactly as they are- with the picture and label attached.  With the second set of cards, cut the label off the pictures to make two piece.  The card with a picture and label, the card with just a picture, and the card with the label now make the three parts of the traditional Montessori 3-part cards.

Once you have the three cards, you can present them to your child in the traditional Montessori method.  Have the child match the picture card with the label to the other two cards.  They can also match the Safari Ltd US National Symbols to the picture cards or label the figurines with the cards.  The child can also spell out the words with a movable alphabet like printable cards or shaped letters.

Pin It!
