In the Montessori homeschooling environment, it is helpful to have 3-part cards as a learning tool for practically all topics... whether it is language, geography, or zoology. On Mama's Happy Hive Teachers Pay Teachers shop, I have created several wonderful 3-part cards for farm animals, pond life, flower anatomy, and more!
We are using these Montessori Farm Life 3-Part Cards in our homeschool plan and we will continue to create more throughout the school year. So please check back often to find out what is new!
How to Use the Montessori Farm Life 3-Part Card Printable:
This 3-part card printable is used to help your child (recommended ages of 3-6 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.
I recommend that you laminate the 3-part cards for durability. You can present them to your child while introducing them to a themed unit study or new vocabulary.
Whenever I create new 3-part cards to use for our unit studies, Little Bee loves to help. He likes to run the cards through the laminator and then help me cut them out. As you can see from the photos, he hasn't mastered the art of cutting the cards out perfectly square. However, I have decided the benefits of him practicing with the scissors (practical life skills) and then working with the cards outweighs the perfectionistic part of my brain. After all... the 3-part cards... for the most part, function just fine even with a little chop here and a little chop there. 🙂
