Christmas Tree Shape Game

Christmas Tree Shape Game can be printed out for as many players you have in class or at home. For really young children call out the shape for them to color. For example, color the square red (then color the circle green, color the hexagon purple, and so on.) You can make your own rules to make the game more difficult or easy to play.

This game is great for following directions, taking turns, small motor skills development, visual discrimination and learning shapes.
It also helps with reading and math readiness.

Advent Calendar Paper Chain

An Advent Paper Chain provides a nice timeline for the Christmas holiday. Montessori used timelines to help children understand the concept time. Time has a present, past and future. Advent helps teach this in a fun and exciting way.

Instead of making an advent calendar,  printout paper chains for counting down the days for Christmas or any holiday. Use a small glue stick and scissors for hours of cutting, pasting and counting fun!

Older children can learn about ordinal numbers, such as 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. Use this printout to make your calendar chains for anytime of the year. It’s a great way to count down the days to your child’s birthday too.
