This group of cards teaches the parts of speech. Each part of speech has one card that defines the part of speech (ex. A preposition tells the position or relationship of one thing to something else.) and one card that explains the part of speech's origin (ex. The word preposition comes from the Latin word praeponene, which means "to place before.")
Each file contains the front and back of a half-page card. Print them out, cut around the borders, and then laminate them back-to-back for a 7.5" wide by 4.5" tall card. One side is in a printed handwriting font and the other side is in a cursive handwriting font. (The fonts are as close to actual handwriting samples as I could find - even the printed "a" appears as it's actually written out by hand.)
The cards are color-coded according to the Montessori grammar symbols. You have the option of using the colors as is, altering them in the PhotoShop files, or trimming them off altogether for a smaller card (6.5" by 3.5" if you trim at the edge of the border). You could even trim off the border and adhere the cards to colored cardstock, if you wish.
Included in this .zip folder are 36 files. Half are PhotoShop files, which you can manipulate as you wish, and the other half are saved as .jpgs, so that you may use them as I do.
