Montessori Elementary Grammar Boxes Reformated (Primary Colors)

As we told you a few days ago, we added a new format for our Elementary Grammar Boxes. You’ll save a lot of printer ink by using this new format with color borders instead of printing full color cards.

We’ve now completed the sets of Elementary Grammar Boxes with Primary Color Borders (Bundle is also available).

Montessori Grammar Box 8 (Primary Border Colors)

Why do we sell the Primary Colors for the Elementary Grammar Boxes? There seems to be two opinions on what the colors should be in Elementary. In primary (3-6 years) the colors used for the words match the colors of the grammar symbols. Some people feel the colors should be extended into the Elementary years (6-9 years) since such impressions were made in previous years through Primary. Others believe that the Elementary colors require the children to focus more deeply on the actual words, names of the parts of speech and their function, rather then the previous visual impressions from the primary years. It’s a personal preference – so we’ve made the materials available in both color options – so think it through carefully before purchasing.

You Asked. We Listened: Montessori Grammar Boxes Revised

We get requests (several a week) for new materials and modifications of our current materials – especially those materials that consume a lot of printer ink. We take each request seriously and do our best to offer what our customers want, if possible.

A few years ago we were receiving constant requests for the Elementary Grammar Boxes material. It was a huge undertaking that took a lot of time to create and then format for use. The materials contain everything you need for the Elementary Grammar Boxes and are available in both the Traditional Elementary Colors and the Primary Colors: Sample of Box #6 – Adverb

Together, all 8 Grammar Boxes contains hundreds of cards …. which can consume a fair amount of ink depending on your printer. We have received a ton of emails asking if we could please sell the file without any color coding so that it could be printed on colored paper instead – and save everyone a lot of money on printer ink. We attempted to reformat the material a few times, however we ran into a few problems along the way. Besides keeping track of all the cards (to ensure they were all included for each box, but printed on separate paper colors), we were concerned about everyone’s ability to get the correct color paper. As well, it’s not possible to print white letters on black paper …. white letters are not ink – it’s the absence of ink on white paper that makes the white lettering. So if you attempt to print white letters on black paper you will simply have a black box with no letters.
After struggling with blank formatting we finally decided to go with the color border option as we have with so many of our other materials. It solves the issue with the color paper and the lack of white ink, it will save a lot of color printer ink, and is much easier to keep organized while preparing and storing all of the cards.So here we have it – our Grammar Boxes with Elementary Color Borders and the Bundle option.

Short Poetry for Children

Short Poetry for Children

An important material to have in your classroom or homeschool environment is short poetry for children.

Poetry can delight, excite, and inspire children to write creatively.The great beauty of poetry lies in its ability to become a shared experience between the reader and writer. Through the power of poetry, readers are able to make connections to the poems they read. By bringing their own background experience to the poem, young readers find more meaning in them and are able to appreciate them more.

Start children off with short poems for listening, reading, and copy work. To make this process easier we’ve put together 10 cards of short poetry and they are available for FREE! (scroll to the bottom of the Free Downloads page)

The following short poems are included:

  1. Color
  2. A House Is a House For Me
  3. Little Kitten
  4. Bubble
  5. The Little Seed
  6. Ladybird
  7. Autumn Leaves
  8. The Whale
  9. Grandfather’s Fish
  10. The Moon

Montessori Elementary Grammar Boxes

Finally, after weeks and weeks of work we’ve finished a material that has been requested over and over again.  Elementary Grammar Boxes!!

Elementary Grammar Boxes by Montessori Print ShopMontessori Elementary Grammar Boxes

This printable material is going to save you lots of money if you were planning to buy a ready-made set, and tons of time if you were planning on making your own set. We’ve created all 8 Grammar Boxes in both the Traditional Colors and the Primary Colors.

There seems to be two opinions on what the colors should be in Elementary. In primary (3-6 years) the colors used for the words match the colors of the grammar symbols. Some people feel the colors should be extended into the Elementary years (6-9 years) since such impressions were made in previous years through Primary.

It’s a personal preference – so we’ve made the materials available in both color options – so think it though carefully before purchasing.

Individual Grammar Boxes or Bundle?

All of the Elementary Grammar Boxes are available individually or you can purchase all 8 boxes together in a Bundle and save yourself 20%. The printables for each box include brief instructions on the contents of each file, how to prepare the cards, and the basic instructions on how to present them. The instructions do not include step-by-step presentations or key experiences (you’ll need an Elementary Language Manual for that).

What do you get for each grammar box

You can read through the contents of each box in the listings, but the general idea is that each file contains the printable cards required to fill the wooden grammar boxes, filling boxes, and command boxes. This includes: a Definition Card, Sentence Cards, Color Word Cards (to recreate the sentences from the Sentence Cards), Command Cards, and Color Word Cards to accompany the command cards. This purchase does not include the actual wooden boxes – you are purchasing a digital file. The file includes the printable cards for the wooden grammar boxes/filling boxes/command boxes. You can choose not to use the wooden boxes and make your own storage system if you’d prefer (you’ll save a lot of money as
the wooden boxes are very expensive).
