Instructions: Flashcards: Colours (Montessori)
Flashcards Colours consists of a pack of 36 flashcards representing 9 colours: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, fuchsia and grey. Each colour is made up of a “master” card, printed both front and back in a solid color, and three other cards: one in the same shade as the “master” card, one in a medium shade and one in a lighter tone. On the back of these colour scale cards, there is a photo of a subject coloured in the same tone as the front. These simple and clear materials, inspired by Maria Montessori’s methods, allow children to recognise colours and shades independently.
Detailed in the instructions are several activities to complete with the cards:
- Same Colours
- Organise the Colour Shades
- Coloured Subjects
