Last month I asked my email subscribers what kinds of free printables they would like me to make, and I received so many new suggestions! There were a few requests for printables about animals and art, so I decided to combine the two to make these new Montessori-Inspired Animals in Paintings Cards!
They can be used as traditional 3-part cards or matching cards, as well as for sorting into various categories.
I knew Nora would really enjoy sorting these by how many animals are in each painting, so I included some cards to sort by number.
I also included some cards to sort by type of animal to provide some extra reading practice for Lila!
And since I had three extra cards to fill, I even included some cards to sort by land, air, and sea — where each animal pictured moves.
While searching for paintings to include, I tried to hit most of the continents and a wide variety of cultures — although in many cultures, painting is not the main form of art and so they may not be represented as thoroughly. These Montessori-Inspired Animals in Paintings Cards include 20 different paintings from around the world featuring animals and 20 sorting cards.
These cards are included as part of my email subscriber freebies!
