Geography - World Classification-Ecology Cards

Early Childhood and Elementary Card Versions In the EC classroom promote a love of the natural world. The cards are simple to sort. Name the subjects and read the simple sentences. This card format was created by Montessori Kindergarten students in 1996! It promotes literacy! These cards promote a lot of student discussion and interaction.

Years later many of the K students began choosing their favorite and drawing it in their journal. Some copied the sentences. Some copied just the name. Others wrote their own. For some we would write it in pencil or a yellow marker and they would trace over it!

This spontaneous activity by our students persisted year after year. I have now seen it in other classrooms where students have journals!

Use cards for What's Missing and Memory. Students can draw a picture or copy the sentence in their writing journal. Kindergartners find this work delightful.

Explore the world with our simple, beautiful continent cards and writing books. Students match photo cards to label cards and read the simple sentences. After the cards are laid out use the command cards to build literacy skills. They like doing this work with a friend, too! Some are inspired to draw a picture and write a sentence or story about their favorite in their journals.

The writing work is set up in baskets so they can choose it themselves. My students always had a folder they could put their work in. When they completed it all they turned into a project book with covers!
