Pre reading Puzzle Game, Free Printable Activity

Miss Ava has been busy with pre reading activities.  The majority of Montessori print materials are handmade in file format containing real life images.  This is a Montessori inspired set I purchased very inexpensively "What Goes Together". This set helps to develop logical thinking, comprehension and problem solving skills.  I would have preferred it have realistic images, but Ava loves this set as did Xander. 
There are are huge amount of files available for pre reading work that are free or inexpensive to purchase. 

I separated the pieces into wooden boxes, and numbered the back to enable Ava to check her own work.  There are 30 sets in this box so that made it difficult to use colour (like I normally would), and I did not have that many stickers on hand so I numbered. This adds in a little number practice for her as well.

I have created a simple FREE What Goes Together printable that we will be using as well.
