Montessori Preposition Cards with Real Images

My six year old is in his sensitive period for grammar. I looked around our home and decided to create Montessori Preposition Cards based on what was in my boys’ environment. This post includes a Montessori lesson to teach prepositions with an apple theme! I used my camera to capture REAL images of objects in our home to include in a fall or apple lifecycle unit. I wanted the pictures to be relatable and relevant to the child. I also wanted simple cards.

I like to use real objects to introduce this part of the sentence. Take a few small objects such as a tub and a cat and demonstrate each preposition with the cat figurine and the tub. I created cards using an apple and a basket.

A preposition is a word that shows the relationship between two words. Prepositions come before a noun or pronoun.  A preposition does not always exist as a single word. Examples are “in front of” or “in addition to”. The grammar symbol in a green crescent.  Here is a free Montessori grammar symbol printable for your use. For the lesson, check out this thorough overview of the Montessori Introduction to Preposition work.

I chose apples because the object is familiar and easily applied across time of year and geographical location. Plus, most kids love apples. So, why not include apples in their learning?

I hope you enjoyed this post! For the cards I used in this post, click here.
