Elementary Nomenclature Giveaway

We hope everyone is enjoying their summer with family and friends. As the summer progresses we’re sure you’re starting to think about the beginning of the new school year and all of the wonderful new materials you plan on adding to your classroom.

And did you download the FREE printable we listed in June? It’s a fun set of 3-part cards that highlights 14 different marsupials. It’s a great starting point for children who are interested in marsupials. You can download it here (if it doesn’t download properly, try another browser: IE, Chrome, etc).

FREE Marsupial 3-Part CardsMarsupials 3-part cardsFor those of you who are new to MPS, you can download over 60+ free Montessori printables on our Free Downloads page.

We’ve also begun a selection of Elementary Nomenclature. What’s the difference between the Elementary Nomenclature and the Primary Nomenclature? The Primary Nomenclature is offered as 3-part cards with each “part” highlighted in color or in red. This helps bring each “part” to the attention of the children without distraction.The materials also include a black-line master so that the children can color, label, and create their own nomenclature booklet.

The Elementary Nomenclature is formatted to a black and white letter-sized page with all of the “parts” labeled (usually more parts are identified than with the Primary Nomenclature). Another page comes with lines but no labels. And yet a third page comes without lines or labels – giving the child the freedom to label, color, or make notations as desired. We’ve also included 1 page of 4 smaller black-line masters for children who still wish to make a booklet as they did in the Primary classroom.

New Printables at Montessori Print Shop

First off, please excuse the mess on our blog. We’ve just moved over to Word Press, and the import of our posts didn’t quite go as smoothly as we’d hoped. Unfortunately, we have to go through and categorize and retag posts, reload photos, and simply figure out how to use it effectively. For those of you who blog, you know this is a tedious and time consuming task.

You can click on the photos below to be directed to the individual listings or visit our New Materials page that is updated each month (here is May 2014) with all the new listings so that you don’t have to click through our entire store trying to find new items.

Did you miss our Free Printable for May?

We had it listed a little over a week before the Canadian Victoria Day holiday, but we didn’t post about it – sorry!! So if you didn’t know about it, or didn’t hear about it in time, please feel free to download it (go to our Free Materials page) and save it for next year.
