I love it. I love going there. I love looking at all of the materials and how the classrooms are set up.
So I am trying again - doing more of it at home with my preschooler but still without a lot of funds and not a lot of space. But I am convinced it is a great way to go.
Here is where I am starting:
This book is divided up into 5 sections: practical life, developing the senses, language development, numeracy skills, science skills.
I decided just to start at the beginning and do a page from each section each week. I set up the bottom shelf of my big Ikea shelf for his Montessori trays.
Like I said - I do not have a lot of room so this will work for now. What I love about Montessori is how they teach practical life and how gross and fine motor skills are taught.
I like the order to it.
It is just tough making sense of it all and figuring it out which is why I am starting with this book.
I have also been making a few things on my own.
If you have thought about Montessori at all I would encourage you to dig deeper.
Living Montessori Now is a great blog. I'd also go and visit a Montessori school in your area so you can see how things are laid out.
You Tube also has many Montessori videos for you to see.
