Montessori Resources

When I was first discovering Montessori, I spent hours reading anything and everything I could about the method. And, honestly that's never stopped. I crave all things Montessori and read as much as I can. If I could take the training to become a guide, I would in a heartbeat. But, for home use, there are so many great resources available for parents, grandparents and anyone interested in the Montessori way of life.

Books



I have read several of these books, and I think I've learned something each time! The Joyful Child in particular is amazing if you have a baby and are just starting out. 

Blogs and Websites 

There are so many great blogs, websites and other online resources for Montessori learning! I cannot create an exhaustive list here, but I will name some of my favorites!

Montessori at Home -- How we Montessori; Montessori 101 Blog

Teaching Montessori/Information about Work -- NAMC Montessori Teacher Training Blog; Montessori Album; Living Montessori Now 

Activities -- There are so many amazing blogs that I read for activity ideas! Way too many to list here. I will say that Pinterest is always a source of inspiration, as is Instagram

Videos -- Montessori Guide

Community -- If you are interested in joining a Montessori community to talk about Montessori and Montessori-related issues, you need to join Montessori 101 Facebook Group! I'm a co-admin and there are so many wonderful people to get to know. 


Materials

While many of my materials are homemade, many are not. There are excellent resources for Montessori materials. Sometimes, just searching these places is an excellent way to get ideas for things you would like to make. 


In Person {mostly for practical life, trays or storage solutions} -- Goodwill, thrift stores, Target Dollar Spot, Dollar Stores, craft stores 

I'm sure I'm missing some amazing resources, because there are just so many! Are there other Montessori resources that you use? Do you have a specific resources question? Let me know in the comments and I would love to update this post!

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2020

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! 2020 UPDATE: This list is updated for another year! Enjoy a variety of Montessori friendly finds from both major retailers and smaller shops!  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, but only works for classroom settings. While there are many works that I recommend for home school use, you won't find these

Sensitive Periods from Birth to 6 - A Chart and Guide

Dr. Maria Montessori spent her life observing, studying, and writing about children. During her lifetime of work she discovered that young children move through a series of special times when they are particularly attracted to specific developmental needs and interests. She called these times, sensitive periods. During the sensitive period, children learn skills related to the sensitive period with ease. They don't tire of that work, but seek it, crave it and need it. When the sensitive period passes, this intense desire is gone, never to return.  That doesn't mean the skill is lost forever once the sensitive period is over. Instead, it just means that it will take a more conscious effort to learn. As Dr. Montessori explains,  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. "A child learns to adjust himself and make acquisitions in his sensitive periods. These are like a beam that lights interiorly a battery that furnishes energy. It is this sensibility which enables

Our Kids' Montessori Gift Lists 2020

With the holiday season upon us we've been making lists and gathering gifts for the Kavanaugh children. It's always a fun process of observing my children, seeing what they would really be interested in and making some decisions based on what I see. This year is different because I'm also making decisions knowing that we are looking at a very long and quiet winter ahead. So that's influencing the amount I will buy and the specific choices I will/have made.  Henry and Nora are also at the point, being into the second plane of development, where they heavily influence the items on the list and what is ultimately purchased. So, you'll see that while Montessori influences what I will purchase and what goes on their list, so does their own preferences and personality.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you.  Theodore Teddy is 14-months-old right now and as the fourth baby, we have so many toddler things. But, there are a few things I've still found tha
