Object to picture matching, is one of most frequent Montessori activity. It’s also one of those activities that can keep a wide range of children happy. Through these the child learns to identify the similar features and to name animals or plants in the picture. The variety of the activities is endless; wherever possible the children will start by pairing real fruits, vegetables, plants to photographs or printed images. Mia loves object to picture matching activities.
This time I’ve put together Toob’s Musical Instruments matching activity. Mia was attentive for the first two instruments and wouldn’t settle right after. I took that as a sign that she doesn’t recognize some of the instruments I’ve presented to her so we need to stop and did it the next day. Next day, before I’ve brought tray on the table we looked into few videos where we saw and listened the sound of each instrument. And yes, she was interested and did full activity. She even says that she would like to learn how to play violin 🙂
