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!

Babies 0-3 -- Aid to Life; Nduoma Blog; Midwest Montessori Blog; Michael Olaf 

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 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
