Revisions: Volcano Nomenclature and Seasonal Sorting

As we’re wrapping up 2013 we’ve been putting extra effort into completing some revisions on a few materials. When customers make positive suggestions for improvements we do try to implement them. This makes Montessori Print Shop better for everyone!

Here’s the deal. If we revise a material that you have previously purchased (it must have the same item SKU #) you can access the revised file through the link in your Download Products Notice. If you can’t find your Download Products Notice you can sign into your account and access it through your purchase history (if you purchased the item under a registered account), or send us an email and we can look it up and send you another download link.

Here are the latest revisions…

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.
