Montessori Inspired October Free Printable

This post has a free Montessori inspired October free printable and DIY activities for the very young through age 7. Children are engaged with pumpkins and this holiday, so take advantage of their attention and sneak in some learning. Five little pumpkins is a fun rhyme to say with children at this time of the year.  Here is the counting printable in use with counters (always have the children arrange them in patterns to help with subatizing) and even letter and number tiles for further reinforcement. Please find two printables below.

It is always important to place counters such as to help children learn to subatize or recognize the amount instantly. That way children can move beyond counting to addition and subtraction. If children have to count the four and the five, they cannot move to problem solving such as 5 + 4 = 9 because they are only able to work with ones. There are other Montessori ways to place the numbers, also, as shown below with the rug work.

Here is the FREE printable for Five Little Pumpkins with some Montessori counting cards. This printable opens right here. For more information about how to use Montessori counting cards, please visit this link.  Or, see this post by Deb Chitwood at Living Montessori Now for expert advice!
