Parts of a Fish

I am considering buying the New Child Montessori Curriculum & have been trialling it at home by using their sample pages & at the moment we are looking at this day with a focus on The Ocean. There is so much to cover for each 'day' so really it will probably cover a week for us!

I have pulled out a big basket of relevant books from our own collection & this morning I put together a cool Parts of a Fish activity based on this fish image which I Google-d.

I printed out a Control card from photo-paper & mounted it, then made some 'puzzle' pieces with the named parts from another print on photo-paper, cutting them out & labeling them on the back of each piece. Finally, I printed out some extra copies for us to colour & label for ourselves.

It was just Hug & I working today but I will do a simplified version of the colouring with Lovely & hope to make some Nomenclature Cards for the Parts of a Fish too. I must start a box.net account so that I can share some of the materials I'm making :)

P.S Jennie at Our Montessori Story is thinking about the same curriculum. Is anyone using it already?

  1. I really like this idea with the labeling/matching/coloring. I think I will incorporate it on my shelves next year.

  2. I'm very intrigued by this curriculum. I hope you'll keep us updated on what you decide :)

  3. I too want to purchase New child. Please let me know what you think of it should you decide to purchase it!
