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!

Calendar Connections ~ Bugs

My wonderful friend Shannon is still working with me to create the Calendar Connections cards. She is a fellow inner city missionary with me and also a homeschooler {and former school teacher}. We have a new Bug Theme Calendar set for you!

Bug Theme Calendar Connections



The facts are written at a 3-6th grade level but you will be able to water them down for younger kids. It’s a great way to involve your entire family in exploring a particular theme.


The cards fit my particular pocket chart calendar, I ordered mine from Oriental Trading but they now have the same one on Amazon!

but you could use a poster foam board and velcro to easily create your own set up. You could also use a standard pocket chart. They seem like they would fit in this calendar on Amazon but I am not certain.


I am now creating smaller sets to go along with the small pocket charts found recently in the Target $1 section. Be sure to visit this post for a tutorial of how to sew your $1 pocket chart into a calendar!

Calendar Connections Small Bugs

There is also a new sheet included to be used in a Calendar Notebook if you are using those too!

I printed my numbers on cardstock and laminated them before cutting them apart.

You can download these for FREE here!
