Language Cards for Toddlers

Language work is always popular with toddlers. Right along side gross motor, toddlers are also going through periods of language explosion. In a Montessori home, we offer a lot of different opportunities for language development from birth. To be clear here, I'm not talking about drilling ABCs or other academic work. But, developing rich expressive and receptive language skills. This includes using correct terminology for things from birth, avoiding baby talk, avoiding screens, and constantly talking with your child.

There are also opportunities to provide work for your child when it comes to language. And many of those opportunities include the use of language cards! Depending on how old/ready your child is, these cards can be used for a variety of purposes including: 

I am sure that there are other Montessori friendly ways that people have used them too! But, right now, they are a huge hit around here. And they were with Nora too!  But, where do you get them? There are SO many options for quality language cards that I cannot possibly list them all here, but I did want to list a few.

Again, these are just a few examples from MANY that are available. When looking for cards, look for cards with high quality images - either real pictures or beautiful illustrations. Look for simple cards, words aren't usually necessary for toddlers. You can also easily make your own by taking pictures of things you have in your environment, or using stock images.

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2021

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure! 2021 UPDATE: Please be patient with links this year, with supply chain issues things are selling out faster and restocking slower.

Montessori Toddler: Favorite Toys and Activities 18 to 20 months

I've been putting off this post for a little while because I felt a little disappointed that I didn't have more to share. See, Teddy just isn't that into materials, especially those on the shelf. He tends to return to a couple of favorites over and over again and ignore all other attempts at shelf work. But, really that's my own adult feelings getting in the way of Teddy's own interests, and developmental path.  It's also me subconsciously valuing fine motor skills and stillness as more important than gross motor play and movement.

All children have different interests and that concentration doesn't have to mean sitting still for long stretches of time.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. With all that said, here are some of Teddy's favorites over the last couple of months. Favorite Montessori Toys 18 to 20 Months I'm listing the toys that have be
