Montessori Monday

An oldy but a goody...

I keep forgetting to do this but it is a "must do" this week!

The Command Game

Supplies needed
  • index cards
  • list of verbs (action words)
  • child
  • marker

Write a different verb on each index card with a marker. Make sure they are verbs that your child can perform, such as run, jump, walk, spin, etc...

Child reads word and performs action. An extension could be to write a sentence on the card for the child to read and perform, such as touch your nose, find a red ball, etc...

This was also on my backburner. Thanks for reminding me about this.

I used to use this game all the time when I was teaching ESL, I never thought of using it at home. It can be a good energy burning game when it is too wet to play outside.
