Montessori-Inspired Seashell Activities Using Free Printables

By Deb Chitwood from Living Montessori Now

I love ocean themes in the summer. While I've had an ocean theme before, I haven't focused specifically on seashells. So that's what this month's unit is with free seashell printables and activities, including a seashell-themed pack for newsletter subscribers at LivingMontessoriNow.com

You'll find many activities for preschoolers through first graders throughout the year along with presentation ideas in my previous posts at PreK + K Sharing

You'll also find ideas for using free printables to create activity trays here: How to Use Printables to Create Montessori-Inspired Activities

 At Living Montessori Now, I have a post with resource links of Free Printables for Montessori Homeschools and Preschools.
