Living Montessori Now Facebook page is nearing 4,000 members! Thank you so much to everyone who has “liked” Living Montessori Now! In honor of that milestone, I’ve started a new feature – free printable of the day.
Free Printables and Hands-On Activities
I love how easy the free printables available online make it for parents and teachers to create attractive, professional-looking educational materials. I enjoy using printables to create hands-on activity trays.
If you’d like ideas on how you can use free printables to create hands-on Montessori-inspired activities, check out my post (and links to free printables on snowman colors and Spanish color words) at PreK + K Sharing: Montessori-Inspired Snowman Color Activities. Each month at PreK + K Sharing, I plan to show how to use a free printable to create and present Montessori-inspired activities.
Free Printable of the Day
On Sunday, I started the free printable of the day at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page. Each day, I share the link to a free printable that will often be for preschoolers. Sometimes the free printable will be for elementary-age children, or it might even be a printable to help organize your home or classroom. The free printable of the day may be recently published or a printable from a blog’s archives.
Today’s Free Printable of the Day
Carisa at 1+1+1=1 often offers lovely free printables. Today, I’m sharing the link to Carisa’s post with The Mitten Printables. The printables go with one of my favorite winter books for young children – The Mitten by Jan Brett. Carisa has free story props, a clip and learn wheel for hands-on phonics work, and read-and-write-the-room activities.
Lists of Free Printables
I also have lists of sites with free printables at:
Whether you’re creating holiday activities right now or winter activities for after the holiday break, have fun creating beautiful hands-on activities! 🙂
