My Favorite Montessori Bloggers

The more I have started to learn about and incorporate Montessori into my home and parenting, the more I realized that it was easy to get lost in the immense amount of resources available online. So many, in fact, that it is easy to become overwhelmed. Recently, I've been asked by a few different people for a list of my favorite online Montessori resources. So, thought I would share a list with everyone.

In no particular order, my favorite Montessori Blogs/Bloggers are:

Living Montessori Now  Living Montessori Now: Some of you may recognize this blog from my tot school posts. I link up with Montessori Monday. This site's resources are incredible to learn about the basics of Montessori and how to in all sorts of early learning. I could spend hours looking through all the blogs that link up on Mondays!

Montessori MOMents: Montessori at work in a home school setting. She has great ideas, especially for older kids.

 Vibrant Wanderings: This blog has excellent information about Montessori principals and philosophy.

How We Montessori: Another home school site. I particularly love the information about setting up Montessori inspired spaces in your home.

 Carrots are Orange: All sorts of interesting activities and ideas, plus information on Montessori principals. 

Pinterest Linkup: Living Montessori Now has an excellent link up for Montessori bloggers where you can find tons of really amazing boards! Including Me

I'm of course forgetting a million awesome sites, but if you're interested in learning about Montessori, I think these are a really great place to start. And just to be clear, I have no affiliation with these blogs, just admiring their work!

Do you have any you would add to the list? Do you blog about Montessori or tot school? Leave a comment,  I love reading new blogs!

Thanks for Hesse! Just starting to think about this kind of stuff. Great starting point. Do you think that you will homeschool Hen?

I have heard of some of these, but there are a few new ones that I am interested in looking at! One I really enjoying digging in to and finding all the good stuff is countingcoconuts.blogspot.com - She hasn't posted anything extremely recently - I think MariAnn is on a blogging break for the time being - but she has SO many good things on there if you look back at past blogs that have been so inspiring for new things in my *just starting to get there finally* montessori-inspired homeschool routine. I think you will like looking through her past posts :)
M and I go back and forth about homeschool. But realistically, I don't think we will. I think we are both afraid of the social costs of homeschool more than anything. We are also fortunate enough to live in an area that has really good public schools that have resources far beyond what I could offer at home.

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2021

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! 2021 UPDATE: Please be patient with links this year, with supply chain issues things are selling out faster and restocking slower. I anticipate some of the specialty toys will not restock once they are gone. Puzzles, in particular, have been difficult to find in stock. 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 toys, bu

Montessori Toddler: Favorite Toys and Activities 18 to 20 months

I've been putting off this post for a little while because I felt a little disappointed that I didn't have more to share. See, Teddy just isn't that into materials, especially those on the shelf. He tends to return to a couple of favorites over and over again and ignore all other attempts at shelf work. But, really that's my own adult feelings getting in the way of Teddy's own interests, and developmental path.  It's also me subconsciously valuing fine motor skills and stillness as more important than gross motor play and movement. I working hard not to do that, and want to normalize that all toddlers are different. All children have different interests and that concentration doesn't have to mean sitting still for long stretches of time.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. With all that said, here are some of Teddy's favorites over the last couple of months. Favorite Montessori Toys 18 to 20 Months I'm listing the toys that have be
