New Works at Home and Spanish


Some new works on the shelf. Two transferring activities: one rice and one bow pasta noodles to transfer with tongs. One simple counting puzzle for Bella. The counting puzzle comes with adding and subtracting. I use the adding and subtracting with sweet boy but not at the moment. I also have a bead activity.



I don't think I've shown these cards I have on the Spanish shelf before. They are to build vocabulary for the children. I purchased these for $6 at WalMart last year. They have about 40 picture/name matching. There are 5 cards grouped by color. It comes with the English and Spanish words to match to the pictures. Here is how I work with the kids. I line up the pictures on one side and the words on the other. I touch the word "La Pelota" for example and say in Spanish "Where is the ball". Then the child moves the word next to the picture while repeating the word.


I also have these 3 part cards. I have 3 part cards for everything: clothing, foods, fruits, parts of the body, home items, parts of the face, animals, etc. Some of these I downloaded from montessorimaterials.org and some I got a copy from the school I taught at.

These cards are kept on the top shelf of the Spanish shelf in envelopes. These envelopes are the library card envelopes. I purchased some from a teacher store and found some at the Dollar Store.
