ShelfWork/Montessori Inspired Activities

DIY Montessori Object Matching

Make your own object matching montessori activities. These activities will enhance vocabulary skills and language content. They will also be great visual discrimination practice.

Process:

1) Get miniature replicas such as Safari LTD toobs, Play food, Miniature animals from Amazon, party supply stores, toy stores, dollar store etc. See locations below and Get coupons at the end of article.

2)  Look for the picture of the item online in google images or place of choice.

You can make a learning mat in powerpoint, publisher, or word. Make squares and insert the pictures you found online. Write the name underneath.

or  make individual cards instead of mats which can be used as flash cards as well.

 

3)Then laminate the mats or cards.  This is the awesome laminator I use-Scotch Thermal Laminator Combo Pack, Includes 12 Assorted Pouches (TL902E)

4) Have the child match the object to the pictures.

These are the Safari LTD toobs I have:
