New Printables at Montessori Print Shop

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.

As the children explore each continent using our Geography materials (in the form of a Continent Box or Folder) they can fill out a page of their passport. It will serve as an information packet and remind them of their world travels. As well, it will provoke greater thought on their observations of various countries and different cultures.

5-Part Montessori Nomenclature Sets by Montessori Print Shop

WIN a set of World Maps and Pin Map Flags

There has been a lot of discussion lately about the various ways to introduce children to geography by way of the traditional wooden puzzle maps and how ‘pin’ maps make an excellent substitute to the beautiful (but expensive and large) wooden maps.

We’ve shown you a typical progression through the geography materials and the extension lessons here. We’ve shown you in this tutorial how to prepare the geography pin maps and flags – and we’ve shared with you a fantastic alternative to ‘Pin’ Flags.

To top all that, we’ve given you a FREE Map of the World and Pin Map Flags that are available on our Free Montessori Downloads page.

Fantastic Alternative to Geography “Pin” Map Flags

Fantastic Alternative to Geography “Pin” Map Flags

If you’ve been following our blog for a while now (or reading through the “Learn How To…” section of our website,) you’re probably familiar with our method of preparing printable Geography Pin Maps and Flags.

Montessori Geography Pin MapsImage Credit

Our Geography Pin Maps and Flags have been featured on several blogs (such as on here, here, here, here, and here) – take a peek at each one as everyone has slightly different ideas on how to prepare them and what materials to use. All of the maps and flags are available in the Geography section of our store. To save you money we offer them in Bundles at 20% Off – BUT we’ve listed them on Sale just for you until 10/29/2012.

Printable Geography Pin Map Flags by Montessori Print Shop

One of our customers has brought to our attention a great new way to make safer, longer-lasting flags for the regular wooden puzzle maps. They are also functional with our printed maps as they have a ‘stand’ and don’t need to be pinned through the paper. The blogGrowing a Godly Girl” has come up with this brilliant idea!

PuzzleMapFlags_2The author of the blog shares her step by step tutorial on making these flags here. How fantastic is that!!
