The Game of the Changing Paper belongs to a group of Montessori language presentations designed for the study of the function of the adjective. Other lessons or language games that share the same aim include the Detective Game of the Triangles, the Adjective Strip of Paper, and the Exercises of Logical Agreement. When a child needs an interactive activity with the teacher or another student to enhance his/her enthusiasm for learning, the Game of the Changing Paper is a welcome activity. This prepared exercise includes eight article and adjective labels on a card stock, eight 5 ½” x 5 ½” different papers, a double plastic pocket with a clear front for the title card and two cards with color-coded grammar symbols printed on them to be kept on each side of the plastic folder. Instructions for presenting this lesson are included.
This material is coded to coordinate with the Albanesi Junior Elementary Language Curriculum Program (ACP).
