Montessori at Home! eBook and Printables Bundle Giveaway!

Any long time reader of this blog knows that I love using Montessori principles in my home. However, I've also been pretty honest about how overwhelming taking the plunge into Montessori can be. While I really believe it's amazing for children and families, it can be really different from mainstream parenting. And, traditional Montessori training programs are expensive and time consuming; something most families simply cannot afford. 

Thankfully, there's a great, affordable option available for families looking to learn about how to use Montessori at home -- Montessori at Home! eBook and Printables Bundle by John Bowman. This wonderful eBook is PACKED with information about how to start using Montessori ideas at home for children ages 3 to 6.

The eBook doesn't just include information about traditional Montessori work, but how to use these principals in everyday life. How can we encourage independence at mealtimes? How should we handle the use of technology? What toys are Montessori-friendly? This eBook answers all these questions and more. 

Additionally, the book integrates passages from Maria Montessori's own books, so you can not only understand the practical uses of the method but also the theory behind them. And, it does it all with beautiful pictures and links to some of my favorite blogs. This eBook has everything from practical life work to science experiments and mathematics giving you great ideas on how to give your child an academic head-start. 

My favorite part about the eBook is something called action steps. These are clearly defined, practical, and easy to implement ideas, and examples perfect for any household. They really break Montessori down make it accessible for everyone. 

While all of this is amazing in and of itself, Montessori at Home! eBook and Printables Bundle doesn't stop there. The package includes an awesome array of printables created specifically for Montessori works by Montessori Print Shop -- one of my favorites for affordable Montessori materials. These printables range from literacy to geography, to matching and math. In total, there are 76 pages of printables! I'm already busy using geography cards from the bundle for my next project.


The absolute best part!? The price -- you get all of this and more for only $10.95! And as a special for The Kavanaugh Report readers, use this link to get $2 off! 

Now, giveaway time! 3 lucky readers will get their very own copy of the Montessori at Home! eBook and Printables Bundle! Follow the Rafflecopter directions for your chance to win!

I'd love to use this with my son, it looks like a fantastic resource!
Oh boy - I don't think I have enough room in this comment box! Just kidding! I would love to win this bundle, and use it to work on filling our shelves with things we don't have for the next school year, and for some summer learning fun! I love Montessori Print Shop, and I have heard so many good things about the Montessori At Home Ebook, although I've yet to purchase it! :) I am sure there are things that all of my children could benefit from in this giveaway, and I'd be so excited to win!

So cool! I'd love to have this stuff! I have twin 3-year-old boys, and we're not putting them in preschool. Some friends and I are trying to start up a Montessori workshop, and these materials would really help!
Claire said…
Wow! What a fantastic resource. I'm interested in starting some geography learning with Lillian so this seems like it would be prefect.

I'd love to use this with all three of my kids- baby through preschooler!
The Montessori At Home! eBook is being used as a guide for many preschools on adding Montessori materials and concepts to their environments, including a number of rural schools in Africa and India. I think you will find it a complete guide for your Montessori workshop project. Good luck!
There is an entire geography & culture section, Claire. Good luck!
Maybe you can use the $2 off discount if you don't win, eh?
The eBook has everything you need, Chelsmi. Cool name BTW.
Hey Synchro, you will find a complete reading program in Montessori At Home! Good luck!
You have your hands full, Pippi. The eBook will give you a complete resource for all their home learning activities, good luck!

I would like to use this in my daycare this summer to enhance the skills of the children I serve.
Good luck, hope you win a Bundle! I have heard from many day care and preschool folks who are using the eBook as an activities guide. You may be interested in a book I will have out (hopefully) later this year, titled How To Start a Montessori School. It will have most of what you learn in a teacher training course in one book.
Your child is the perfect age to start with Practical Life, then move into Sensorial materials. These materials are the heart of Montessori for young children, and prepare them perfectly for the sensitive periods for math, writing, and reading. Good luck!
Welcome to the USA, Ana, and good luck in the giveaway! If you do not win :(, perhaps you can use the $2 off discount link and get Montessori At Home! for just $8.95. It really is the only resource you'll need for most of your activities.
Good luck, Amy! I know of many preschools and day care centers using the ebook as a guide to implementing more Montessori style materials into their programs. The materials do work very well for both normally developing and challenged kids. Maybe you can use the $2 off discount link if you don't win. I will also have a book coming out later in 2014 called, How To Start a Montessori School, which will lay out most everything you need to know to set up and operate a Montessori Prepared Environment for 2 1/2 - 6 yr. olds.
Good luck, Jennifer, and all the best for your homeschooling adventures. When I wrote MAH I had no idea of the extent of the homeschooling movement, but I do now!
Excellent, Bethany, good luck!
Wishing you good luck in the giveaway!
Congratulations for using Montessori in your homeschooling, It is a method that perfectly adapts to home use. Good luck in the giveaway!

I would absolutely love to win this! Having a Montessori home has been important to use since the beginning and while we have only had bad luck in the child department, we are still striving every day to make sure we are ready when we get that phone call!

What a great set of resources! It would be a great help to have some resources ready made! I "homeschool" my little guy but will be working full time this year, so am not sure how I'll be able to balance it.
I feel like I keep posting a comment and it isn't showing up. I hope this one does! :)

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2017

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure!

2017 UPDATE: This post has been updated to include a variety of brands and new product finds! Just a reminder that no one child will be interested in all of this or needs all of this. These toys are just here to spark ideas and give you a feeling for some Montessori-friendly options available! 


So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. 


First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created to…

Which Open-Ended Toys are "Worth it?"

As a Montessori parent, I try to provide a mix of materials in our home to engage my kids! That work that will spark joy, concentration, and repetition. It's not always an easy task, as Maria Montessori said, "Life is mysterious...only the choice of life can choose the work that the child truly needs. Therefore, the teacher respects this mysterious process and knows to wait with faith." So, there does sometimes feel like there is a bit of trial and error when it comes to choosing materials that your children need. 

For us, the right balance is easier to find when I spend time deeply observing my children. Watching their interests, sitting on my hands if I have to, letting them struggle a little with things, and letting them get bored. And what I have personally found is that here at home, a combination of open ended materials and more structured work have been the right balance. Open ended toys wouldn't necessarily be found in a Montessori classroom, but they are perf…

A Montessori Approach to Purging Your Toys

Becoming a Montessori family has been life changing in so many ways, most obviously with the amount and type of materials we use in our home. Once you see why having so many toys is a problem, or when you make the decision to move towards Montessori, it can be completely overwhelming. But, taking a Montessori approach to purging your toys is possible! And, it doesn't exactly mean that you have to throw away everything you have and start over with only expensive wooden toys. It will mean taking a hard look at what you have and whether it really fits with Montessori.


One note, however, Montessori is at its core about following your child's own path and respecting your child as a whole person. So, if your child has a toy, lovey, book, or whatever that your child super loves or is super attached to, but it doesn't fit Montessori ideals, don't take it away. Follow your child, that is more Montessori than whether or not you own some specific consumer product.
