Valentine's Day Noun Activities for Preschoolers with Free Printables

 I am so excited about these new Montessori-inspired Valentine's Day Noun Activities for Preschoolers. They even come with a new free printable.

It's my plan to bring them along with us to Sunshine's next visit for her to enjoy during learning time. (We try to keep our daily schedule as close to home as possible when we visit to practice each and every part of the day.)

Sunshine absolutely loves holidays. When I combine holidays with learning, she's sure to enjoy herself and learn so much more. It also helps that there are a lot of hands on activities, which always keeps her busy.


Montessori-inspired Valentine's Day Noun Activities for Preschoolers with Free Printables

In the Montessori albums, nouns are introduced in the elementary classroom.

I'm here to say, it's perfectly okay and sometimes highly encouraged to introduce noun concepts in the Montessori preschool classrooms.

I create noun activities for preschool children, for this very reason.

The goal is to follow the child. 

If a student is showing signs of interest in learning about grammar early, go for it!

As a preschooler, Bulldozer LOVED shapes and colors. He was drawn to the Montessori Grammar Symbols because of this. Though he couldn't read or write at the time, he learned about grammar, because he loved it so much.

We continued with grammar lessons in elementary when he was ready for the next level, but so much of his knowledge is based on all of those preschool lessons and activities.

Today I'm excited to show you four activities that may work for Montessori preschoolers in your life!


Valentine's Day Noun Activities for Preschoolers


N is for Noun


N is for Noun

Grammar lessons can be combined with so many other learning concepts. Here I've created a first letter sound "do-a-dot" page that focuses on the Montessori Grammar Symbol for nouns. This activity can also include cutting and gluing.

Sunshine will cut the triangles and glue them onto the letter n, in each of the triangles there. 

As she works, and once finished, we will review that a black pyramid/triangle stands for a noun, which is a person, place, thing, or idea in a sentence.

Valentine's Day Nouns: People, Places & Things


Valentine's Day Nouns: People, Places & Things

In this activity Sunshine will learn and understand that a noun is a person, place, or thing. I've included the Montessori Grammar Symbol for nouns on the tray as a visual to remember what a noun is.

We will go through the pictures together to identify what each one is. Once she feels confident knowing the name for each image, she will sort them under the "people," "places," and "things" cards provided.

I absolutely love this activity and the cards included. There are so many fabulous people to discuss when it comes to Valentine's Day including a chocolatier, jeweler, and baker. The "places" and "things" cards are great as well.

I Spy Nouns!


I Spy Nouns!

Once the realization comes that nouns are people, places and things, it can be quite fun to play "I Spy" with nouns. How many nouns can you find?

In this activity Sunshine will use her favorite magnifying glass to look for nouns in the picture cards provided. She will be working with a parent or sibling, so she can share her nouns verbally.

If she's up for it, I'm going to invite her to use the "big kid" version of this activity where she is able to write what she finds on the lines provided.

I Spy Nouns! Writing Activity

This is not a spelling activity, so she can do her best to write words without worrying if they're spelled wrong. If she wants help spelling, she can always ask for it.

You'll notice I also included a noun pyramid in this activity to reinforce the Montessori Grammar Symbol.

This is a super fun activity to reinforce that nouns are things. Sunshine will match up the objects with the free noun word strips provided.

What I love about this activity is that all of the noun word strips have to do with objects you may see at a Valentine's Day Party. All objects are $1 or less, found at Walmart or our local dollar store.
