Montessori-inspired Advanced Language Bundle in Action

Princess, Bulldozer, and Dinomite are now in a place where they're ready to be introduced to the Montessori advanced language curriculum.  

For some this may be called the green series, depending on what training you've received.

For others advanced language skills may simply include phonograms and long vowel sound combinations.

No matter what you call it, everything you're looking for and more can be found in the Montessori-inspired Advanced Language Bundle!

This bundle is incredible with 323 pages of advanced language resources.

Let's take a closer look!

Now here are the details about what's included in the 100 cards!

Each page of the control cards includes two words with matching long vowel sounds/phonograms.  There is only one exception to this rule which you'll understand when you come to it.

These same words are used throughout the entire printable.

Here are the long vowel sounds/phonograms included:

Long vowel sounds covered in this bundle include:

  • a: a_e, ai, ay, a, ea, and ei
  • e: e_e, ee, ea, e, ie, ei, and y
  • i: i_e, ie, i, igh, ig, and y
  • o: o_e, oa, ow, oe, o, ou, oo, and ough
  • u: u_e, ue, ew, and u

Other vowel sound combinations covered in this bundle include:

  • ea as in eh
  • oo
  • ou as in ow
  • ou as in aw
  • ough as in ow
  • ough as in uf
  • ough as in aw
  • ough as in oo
  • oi
  • er
  • ir
  • ur
  • or


Consonant combinations covered in this bundle include:

  • qu
  • mb
  • bt
  • wh
  • kn
  • wr
  • ch
  • sh
  • th
  • ph

There really is no other bundle where you'll find all of these letter combinations covered so extensively.

Now let's take a look at the printables themselves.  

I had hoped to share photographs of my kiddos hard at work using these printables but my printer broke last week.  A new one was ordered and has arrived, but I'm struggling to find the right toner for it.  So until then, I hope these previews of the printable itself will do.

Advanced Language Control Cards
Montessori-inspired Advanced Language Control Cards
 These control cards are designed to be used with the Kid Advance Small Black and Red Movable Alphabets.  Once a child is learning phonograms he switches to these movable alphabet colors to better isolate the language skill being worked on.

In this case long vowel and consonant sound combinations being emphasized are created using the red letters. The rest of the letters in each word are black.

The control cards are created to work with the movable alphabet letters.  They fit almost perfectly.

If you have a child who is delayed in fine motor skills and writing you may want to consider this option.

For those without delays don't hesitate to print four pages to one page to preserve paper and ink.  The smaller cards look beautiful and are perfect for all sorts of activities.

The cards above are called control cards but can be used for so many other things. When isolating different ways to write long vowel sounds the cards can be used for sorting or a match up.  The same can be true when working on consonant blends.  The sky really is the limit here.

Advanced Language Tracing Cards
Montessori-inspired Advanced Language Tracing Cards
 These tracing cards were designed for Sunshine who struggles with fine motor skills, particularly writing.  Providing her with large words to trace eliminates the frustration she usually has when attempting to trace small, fine lines in other tracing activities I've seen.

If you child doesn't struggle so much with fine motor and pre-writing tasks, but is beginning their writing journey these cards look great and are fabulous to use printed four pages to one page.  They just require a more refined tracing skill.

Advanced Language Writing Cards with Lines

 You have two options when using these cards.

1. Use the Kid Advanced Movable Alphabet to spell words that match the pictures, placing them correctly on the lines.

2. Using a writing utensil, practice writing the words that match the pictures on the cards.

Depending on your child's abilities will depend on how large you'd like the cards printed.  If your child struggles with fine motor skills and writing in general, print the cards as they appear in the bundle.

If your child is confident in their writing abilities, don't hesitate to print these four pages to one page to save on ink and paper.

Advanced Language Easy Word Identification Clip Cards
Montessori-inspired Advanced Language Easy Word Identification Clip Cards
These clip cards are designed for children just learning to read and pronounce words.  Each card includes choices that differentiate short vowels and long vowels, as well as different words in general.

Whether you use stamps, stickers, clothespins, glass beads, or even a writing utensil doesn't matter so long as you choose a way to identify the answer on each card.

To preserve ink and paper, feel free to print these two pages to one page.  They work just fine that way.

Advanced Language Hard Word Identification Clip Cards
Montessori-inspired Advanced Language Hard Word Identification Clip Cards
 These cards are very similar to the easy ones above, except they're much more challenging.  Answer choices include different possible ways to spell long vowel sounds taught in the bundle.  If you're looking for activities for a child in the early elementary classroom these work great!

To preserve ink and paper, feel free to print these  two pages to one page.  They work just fine that way.

Advanced Language Letter/Blend Clip Cards
Montessori-inspired Advanced Language Letter/Blend Clip Cards
This activity is once again designed for children in the early elementary classroom.  The child must choose an answer from several different ways to write the long vowel sound needed to complete the word.

To preserve ink and paper, feel free to print these two pages to one page.  They work just fine that way.

Advanced Language Fill in the Blank Cards

 Depending on the needs of your child and whether they prefer paper with or without lines, these work great for confident writers.

Your child will write the word that matches the picture in the space provided.  We laminate these cards and use whiteboard markers to save paper and provide opportunities for multiple uses.

To preserve ink and paper, feel free to print these two pages to one page.  They work just fine that way, so long as your child can write small.

Advanced Language Sentence/Phrase and Picture Match Ups
Montessori-inspired Advanced Language Sentence/Phrase and Picture Match Ups
 Kiddos will love matching sentences and phrases to beautiful pictures in this printable.  All of the sentences and phrases use advanced language words.

Advanced Language Picture and Word Match Up

These cards are perfect to use as your child progresses to feeling confident spelling words without a control.  Whether you present the picture cards and have the child write the words on a sheet of paper, or you use the movable alphabet, they work fabulously well.

Bulldozer loves to use these cards to play a game of memory once he's learned which words represent which pictures.

You'll note as you go through the cards that not only are they great for spelling, reading, and writing, but they are designed to enhance a child's vocabulary.

There is so much included in the Montessori-inspired Advanced Language Bundle!  It's a must for every classroom whether at home or school.
