Bird Theme Pre-Writing Cards
Begin with pre-writing cards for your youngest learners. These printable cards can be consumable (print as many as you need) or save them to use again and again by cutting out the cards and laminating them for use with dry or wet-erase markers.
Preschoolers can use pre-writing cards to master proper pencil grip and practice forming the strokes and lines used to form the majority of letters and numbers we use to write. Plus, your early learners will enjoy helping each bird reach the winter berries at the end of the tracing line.
Word Tracing Cards
The bird themed word tracing cards in this printable pack are a great way to help your preschool and kindergarten learners practice their handwriting skills this Winter.

I’ve also included bird themed writing activity pages in this Montessori-style learning bundle. You can use these pages for copywork related activities for younger learners. Older kids can practice proper sentence structure, grammar, and creative writing by creating their own bird stories or writing about the birds they see in the backyard with these fun printable pages.
Plus, there’s a writing prompt to encourage your early learners to share all the things they’re learning about birds.
Practicing Numeracy with Montessori Inspired Bird Printables
I’ve included lots of ways to help your early learners build important numeracy skills while learning about birds this February. There are activities for preschoolers, kindergartners, and early elementary learners in this Montessori-style Winter bird activity pack.
Winter Bird Hundreds Chart
Begin teaching your kids to count to 100 with this cute bird themed 100s chart printable. Kids can practice counting by rote, skip counting, and begin exploring place value with this simple printable.
I recommend laminating this page to maintain its integrity. These 100s charts will get used a lot as you work to build numeracy skills with your early learners. With older children, 100s charts get a second life as they begin to learn how to solve addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division equations.
Bird Counting Clip Cards
These bird themed counting clip cards are a fun way to build early numeracy skills and fine motor skills with a hands-on math activity your kids will love. Each printable card contains a number of birds.
Your children can practice their counting and number recognition skills by counting the birds and choosing the correct number of birds on each card. Then, build finger strength by clipping a clothespin to the correct number.
Bird Math Activities
The bird themed counting clip cards in this printable activities pack also include an opportunity for number tracing. Rather than clipping a clothespin to the correct number, your early learners can practice writing the numbers by tracing the correct number.
To use these cards again and again, laminate each card and use dry or wet erase markers.
Number Word Cards
Finally, you can use the number word cards in this printable bundle to help your early learners build important early numeracy skills as they work to learn the names of each number and identify number words.
You can cut out these cards and use them in a variety of ways for lots of early learning fun.
