Labeling for the Holidays

Montessori labeled items in the environment to teach reading and spelling. It’s a nice change to label some of your Holiday decorations. For example, if you celebrate Christmas, label the tree, nativity scene (barn, Mary, manger, Jesus, Joseph, sheperd, angel, Wise Men, lamb, donkey, camel, ox and so on)
lights, candles, gingerbread house and what ever special items you display.
Your children will love doing this lesson.
