Months of the Year 3-Part Cards
The aim of this material is to introduce the children to the Latin derivation and history of the months of the year and is a great addition to any calendar studies. It could be used in its entirety or individually at the onset of each new month.
Nomenclature cards, or 3-part cards are a wonderful way for children to interact with new information. The material consists of labels, definition cards, and pictures. When completing this work, the child should begin by sorting all the cards and placing the pictures across the top of their rug or table. They then read the labels and definition and match them to the pictures.
When finished matching, the child should check their work using the control before recording their work in a journal. This includes writing the label, drawing a picture, and paraphrasing the definition. Children are encouraged to conduct additional research!
Print the material on cardstock, cut on the dotted lines, and laminate if possible.
