Little Bee has been really excited about unearthing the insects outside this spring. He has actually been hyperfocused on finding worms and roly poly bugs (pill bugs). Every morning he wakes up and excitedly exclaims that we can go to the garden to find more buggy friends! I decided to create this free insect matching 3-part card printable for my bug lover and for all the other bug lovers out there. 🙂 Enjoy!
How to Use this Printable:
This 3-part card printable is used to help your child (recommended ages of 2-6 years old) to become familiar with new vocabulary, visual discrimination, and encourages rational thinking. You can use the 3-part cards with toddlers as matching cards and as actual 3-part cards for older kids who are learning to read.
What are 3-part cards?
To use these cards as three parts, print two copies. That way you have one copy of the original card with the word attached. Then take the second copy of the same card and cut the word apart from the picture. Then you will have three parts – card with word attached, card with picture only, and word card. The child can match the pictures and also match the shapes of the words.
We recommend that you laminate the 3-part cards for durability. You can present them to your child while introducing them to a topical study or new vocabulary.
