I can’t believe Living Montessori Now is already a year old! It’s true that time flies when you’re having fun! I already announced the Montessori Print Shop giveaway winner, and now I have a free printable Montessori material for you!
Because my blogiversary is just a little over a week before Earth Day (April 22), I created a free printable of 3-part recycle cards.
To download the 3-part cards, click here, then right click on the image and choose “Save Picture As …”
3-Part Recycle Card Directions
1. Print out 2 copies, and separate the words from the photos on one of the pages.
2. Even though my file isn’t downloaded exactly like the Montessori Print Shop files, there are some wonderful Instructions for Montessori Materials at Montessori Print Shop that give ideas for laminating, storing, and presenting Montessori 3-part cards.
3. In addition to using the cards as 3-part cards, I always like to add 3-dimensional objects whenever possible. I’d recommend having a basket of recyclable materials such as paper, glass bottles, plastic bottles, and cans for your child to match below the cards. You could also use the cards as labels for recycling bins.
UPDATE: You’ll also find more ideas for using the 3-part recycle cards in my Free Earth Day Printables and Montessori-Inspired Earth Day Activities post.
