Amazing Products from Montessori Print Shop!
I have been privileged to choose a product review for Montessori Print Shop. Since we are working on birds, I got the Parts of a Bird 3 part cards. 3 part cards are one of those products that sound like a good idea, but I always wonder if Bunny will really use them. What I found was interesting. Bunny usually only does the cards a few times, but she does absorb the information! The cards from Montessori Print Shop are actually the best I have ever presented her. The simple illustrations really provide a clear idea of where each area part is on the bird. I made a felt bird that I highlighted the parts of the bird with wool roving for her to look at while she did the cards. It wasn’t long before she could identify the parts of the bird! I was very impressed with this product. Not only did the cards print off beautifully, but they also came with the blank backline so that Bunny can color each part and label it to make a book. We haven’t done this part yet, but I think that she is going to LOVE to do it.
While we are learning about birds and the baby chicks, I thought that having the Parts of an Egg cards would be good too. Bunny and I have looked through them, but we haven’t had time this week to use them with a real egg yet, but this is part of our plan for Monday!
I really love these cards and I really encourage you to check out the HUGE list of cards that are available through Montessori Print Shop! You will be pleased!
There are some other great blogs that are reveiwing some of the Montessori Print Shop materials. So check out what they think too!

I have those parts of the bird cards and love how you added the felt bird to the work. Vitalline membrane? My son would love these cards for the vocabulary alone. I have learned that the three part cards eventually grow on the child and they start thinking three part cards are needed for everything:) Maybe they will grow on Bunny too. Nice post! Thank you for linking to my blog and for sharing.
