Montessori Language Arts: Learning Nouns with FREE Farm Animals Printables

Here is our wonderful post on Language Arts. As humans, we use language to communicate as soon as we can; it is only right to study the wonderful subject of language (grammar, spelling, reading, writing).

In this lesson, you will see sorting, matching, naming labeling and learning noun words while labeling them as such. I love using the farm to teach nouns. I hope you find inspiration to try this lesson with your children and/or students, especially that you enjoy the FREE printables.

What We Need for Our Noun Lesson

This is so easy! All you need is the set of FREE printables you can find in this post and one set of these mini farm animal replicas. Print the barn image in color on cardstock and laminate it (unless you have a toy barn at home). We used to have one, but got rid of it, so I made something that is nice, durable and that it doesn’t take up a lot of room.

I included labels like “pond, lake, etc” in case you wanted to cut out small blue pieces of blue felt to label them as well. If you have an actual toy farm, you can make your own labels with the words “silo, house, farm, etc.”

The animal cards can be used for so many activities! It is amazing! I will tell you several things you can use them for. For the animal cards, if you want to use them as 3-part cards, print the set twice in color and laminate them. Having two sets can never hurt.

After you laminate them, cut one set around picture and word (so they are both in one piece) and the other set is cut where the picture and the word are separate. For example, for the horse, you will have a picture that says “horse” at the bottom, a picture of a horse and a label with the word “horse.”

For the mini farm animal replicas, you can use any set of animals you can find, but I highly recommend these because they are the best. Hand-painted, no toxic chemicals in the paints used and they are high quality. They are very durable and very affordable. There are many sets that you can buy, including farm baby animals. I bought the regular farm animals set for this activity.

Below, you can see how I set up the barn picture, the cards, the labels, the noun triangles and the mini farm animal replicas. I used a bamboo placemat for this activity (the size of a regular placemat), but you can certainly use a regular 2×3 natural fiber mat that is regularly used in a Montessori classroom. This activity was fun to do on the floor, but it can also be done at a child-sized table.

 Noun Presentation

First, I used the two labels you see in the first picture below. Place the noun and the definition of a noun labels on the natural fiber or bamboo placemat. We talk about that for a little while. Then I place the detailed labels below the two main noun labels.

Talk about the details of each category: person, place, thing, idea. We come up with more examples for each category. Finally, I place one large black triangle and tell children that nouns are represented by it and the large black triangle is placed above the nouns.

Matching, Sorting, Labeling and Naming Nouns

Matching Activity: 3-Part Cards (not pictured)

I printed TWO (2) color copies of the animal cards set (pages 2-4) on white card stock and laminated them using a thermal laminator. Then cut them with a guillotine. It is important to point out that one set of cards is cut with words and pictures together.

The second set of cards was cut like the first set, except that the pictures and the words were cut separately to make them 3-part cards (the cards with picture and words, the picture cards and the word cards). I use a zipper baggie (sandwich size) to keep them together.

To use them, you place all 12 cards (with image and name) on the placemat. Then, child matches images and places them next to each other. Finally, the child matches the animal name labels and places them under the correct image.

Labeling Activity: Animal Names are Nouns

We placed the mini farm animal replicas on the placemat. My child placed the correct animal name cards right above the correct animal, labeling each animal with the correct name. Finally, she placed a large black triangle above the animal name label to certify that all names are nouns. We talked about nouns again.

Naming Activity: Animal Name Words are Nouns

Our last activity took our items away from the placemat (you won’t need it anymore). “Elsa” took the mini farm animal replicas and placed them near the barn. Then she began naming each animal and placed their name labels by them. After that, she took one large black triangle and as she placed it above the animal name label, she would say, “‘Sheep’ is a noun. ‘Horse’ is a noun. ‘Goat’ is a noun.” and so on.
