Crawly Creatures Memory and Match-Up Printables

I have a new set of Montessori Printables for you!  A few weeks ago we shared our Crawly Creatures 3-Part Cards and today we have a Memory/Match-Up set.

Crawly Creatures Memory and Match Up Printables

There are 3 different pages included in this set, shown below.  The top two are the same, except one has the word and one doesn’t.  When we play memory, we use one of each.

Below you see the “Match-Up” board, which we only used when Ladybug was a tot.  This page is meant to be left whole and used for matching as shown in examples later in this post.Slide7

Ideas for using these printables…

This is how we used the Match-Up option when Ladybug was a tot.  I left the board whole as shown and then printed a set of cards for her to match to the board.  This helps with word-picture association and visual discrimination skills. The set below went along with our J is for Jellyfish/Ocean Animals theme.

Each unit in Tot School Printables had a vocabulary sheet like this {the picture cards} and she loved them as a tot.  She loved drawing ad coloring on them as I called out a word.  The page shown below is from our J is for Jellyfish/Ocean Animals set.

I often slipped them in our dry erase center.  Below you can see her pretending to write the letters in each word. The page below is from our V is for Volcano/Landforms set.

Often is was just scribbling! The page below is from our U is for Umbrella/Weather theme.

Matching mini animals is something we did a lot, when we had animals to go along.  Below is the C is for Cat/Pets printable with the Pets Toob animals.

Below she is matching up small mammals from our M is for Mouse/Small Mammals set.

Below you can see our D is for Duck/Birds printables being used with some bird stuffed animals we have.

Below is the G is for Goat/Farm set with some Little People Farm animals we have.

Below she is using homemade pom pom magnets and a cookie sheet and putting her magnet on the word I call out. The printable below is from R is for Rainforest.

The final and most obvious way to use these printables is to play memory!  Print 2 sets of the picture cards, laminate, and play memory!

Montessori Nomenclature Printables 3 Part Cards Bugs and Creatures

I have been meaning to add to our Montessori Printables collection for years and was finally inspired to finish some sets I had begun long ago! I have a few more sets I am working on and hope to continue sharing these as I complete them. 

For today, here is our new Crawly Creatures set.  It began as just bugs, but I wanted to include a snail, slug, and worm so I had to change the name!

Unfamiliar with Nomenclature cards, also called 3-Part cards? 

Nomenclature cards are a Montessori based idea. The word Nomenclature comes from the Latin “nomenclatura” which means assigning of names to things. Nomenclature cards are also called “3 part cards” for obvious reasons!

Here’s a couple of articles sharing more about the what, why,  and how!
