  • Do you have young children?

  • Are you thinking about homeschooling?

  • Are you interested in using Montessori ideas at home?

If so, you may be interested in a newly-available Montessori curriculum organizer.  I aim to provide plentiful food for thought and discussion here at this site as time goes on, and to keep pointing you towards other homeschooling sites and blogs as well.  In the meantime, especially if you are relatively new to homeschooling, I do have a 104-page, tightly organized summary of an entire Montessori-inspired curriculum in print.  I’m using Lulu.com for printing-on-demand, shipping, and purchasing services.  Cathy Duffy has reviewed this organizer here.

Using Montessori ideas at home with children of different ages can get overwhelming, and I needed to have a portable summary of my plans to refer to and write in as new ideas came up.  The end product is a summary of all of my educational goals and plans for my children, focusing on the ages of 3-9.  It is NOT a Montessori album, but it does includes lists of all of the basic Montessori presentations.   You can preview several of the pages on the Lulu website.  Regardless of how much great information you can find online, it’s still great to have a workbook you can tuck in your purse, carry around, flip through, and write in.  Be sure to let me know if you have any questions, and click on the image below to take a look!

    • Hi, Martianne – thanks for stopping by. There is a preview on the Lulu product page. Click the word “preview” beneath the picture here. Let me know if you have any further questions.

  1. I just finished reading The Montessori Homeschool Curriculum Organizer, and am happy. Since contemplating homeschool I have found the whole idea rather daunting. So I received the book and opened it up… what a relief! It’s simple to read, easy to navigate and understand.

    The book is divided into introduction, six parts and then appendixes. The ideas/suggestions are presented in point form so they are very easy to reference for future use. In the six parts are presented six areas: Theology, Character, Practical life, Living in Community, All about creation and The Arts & Physical Education. Again the information is presented simply, it is bulleted and then the following mini chapters go on further to explain it. This really appeals to me as I dip my toes into the homeschool world.

    It was quite simple to read and could probably be read fairly quickly, but again, easy to reference.

    There were sections for me to write my own goals and ideas in, which are very handy.

    I think it will be a great book for those who would like some tips and pointers on how to implement the Montessori method.

    Thank you,

    Carol
