Benefits of Using the Australia Three Part Cards

Three part cards are a Montessori method used to let children manipulate materials in order to grasp the information on the cards.

Three part cards are great for introducing new vocabulary at the beginning of a new unit of study.

They can also be used for matching, reading, spelling, and writing activities.

How to Use the Australia Three Part Cards

Print the Australia three part cards on cardstock. Cut out cards. One card will be cut apart on the dotted lines.

The card with the name attached is the control card. Teach the child using the control cards.

Lesson one: Say, “This is a koala (and point to it); this is a platypus” (and point).

Lesson two: Say, “Can you show me the koala? Can you show me the platypus?”

Lesson three: Say, “What is this called (point to the koala)?”  “What is this called (point to the platypus)?” Start by laying out a few cards, then increase as child learns more. Eventually, the child should be able to match all the cut cards. After the child is done, he checks his work with the control cards.
