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.

Holiday 3-part cards

Use last years Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzza cards to make some nice holiday reading 3-part cards. I know I don’t want to send out last year’s cards, and I have at least 2 or 3 copies of each, which makes them perfect for Montessori reading cards.

Here are some examples you can use -print out 2 copies for each word you want to introduce. You can trim off any part of the card to make the exercise make more sense to your child.
Shepherds
Mary & Jesus
Nativity
Menorah

For older children, you can write more than one word label for the card. For example, write Mary and Jesus or a short sentence, ‘This is Mary and baby Jesus.” Older children can make a timeline of the holiday from the past to the present.
