When my kids were younger, we did a wide range of activities.  Along the way, I made a number of Montessori 3-Part cards and other resources for them. I wanted to highlight some of those printables for you today.  Below, you’ll find more than 30+ printables.  Many of them are free. :)  Enjoy! ~Liesl

Math Challenge Packet for Ages 4 to 6 – free! When my daughter was young (K4), I had a hard time finding material that was right for her level. I made a lot of her own worksheets. I re-did one of those packets (with better graphics!). This one has problems like counting, simple graphs, filling in missing numbers, number matching (skip counting by 10s) and others.

Addition Subtraction Pet-Themed WorksheetsI have to say we also did a lot of really ACTIVE math activities at this age… like this chalk snail… my son was doing addition problems! (My daughter was patiently waiting her turn. There were some light number in pink that you can’t really see in the photo. She had to step on the number and tell me what it was.)

Here my daughter is practice LEFT and RIGHT. The feet were drawn so she had to cross her legs as she stepped to the next foot-print. This is great for coordination and the concept of left and right.

In the winter, I would use contact paper to create similar math activities indoors.  Here are more math ideas: 4 Fun, Active Games for Practicing Math Facts.

Drawing and Copy Work: Just want to add that at this age, we also *really* loved the Draw, Write Now books.  They come in all different kinds of themes and I think in the end we wound up getting four or five of them. :) A few titles include from the Draw Write Now series: On the Farm, Christopher Columbus, Autumn Harvest, Native Americans, North America, Pilgrims, Animal Habitats (on land, ponds and rivers, ocean)  (affiliate links) These books have instructions for drawing various pictures and include copy work as well. We’ve gotten a lot of use from these (my 3rd grader still uses these from time to time).

Draw Write NowP.S. Over on FB someone was asking what we did for things like handwriting and writing at this age.

For handwriting we used Handwriting Without Tears. That worked really well for us.  My First School Book (affiliate link) is for PreK. My Printing Book (affiliate link) is the next in the series for kindergarten or grade 1. This series really helps explain how to form the letters – magic c… up like a helicopter… etc.!  This post has links to some videos that show how to form some of the letters properly: Preschool at Home: Handwriting

Handwriting without Tears

The kids also did some copywork from various resources I picked up. I have made a set of free copywork pages to share with you. It has famous sayings such as “A friend in need is a friend indeed” and “A penny saved is a penny earned.”: (coming May 10th, 2017)
