Snowflake Matching Work

Snowflake Bentley is one of our favorite winter books, so when I saw this snowflake matching work on My Montessori Journey I was very excited.  I love activities that are directly related to the books we read.  Thanks to Laura for emailing me the file!

The pictures for this work are actual photos of snowflakes, and they may be the photos that Snowflake Bentley took many years ago (we like to think they are anyway!).

O likes to sort the snowflakes into 2 groups before she starts matching them ("pointy" and "not pointy").  She looks at the tiny pictures of snowflakes through a magnifying glass in order to match them to their larger matches.  This is more difficult than I anticipated!

I put star stickers on the backs of the cards to facilitate self-checking. 


  1. We got these from My Montessori Journey as well and they are so cool! :) I hope that you had fun with them too!

  2. I really like the idea of using star stickers to self check. I am sure it saves a busy parent/teacher from repeatedly being asked to check if they did it right. :)

  3. Cute! I will definitely be doing this with my daughter. Thank you!
