Sponsor Introduction & Celebration

Happy Friday, Everyone!

I'm elated to introduce you to our first Feeding the Soil sponsor ever. Everyone, please meet MontessoriHouse, the Etsy shop that provides access to information about how to do Montessori in the home. MontessoriHouse, please meet some of the coolest and most insightful folks I know.

As a certified Montessori teacher for ages 6-9, I knew that I wanted to implement Montessori in the home. However, getting my hands on exactly how to do that has been so, so difficult. There's a book that shares how to set up your home for an infant, but it's very dense and not always as clear as possible. There's also a catalog that has some good information, this site is easy to understand, and there are lots of mom websites of Montessori in action to turn to. But, honestly, it's not enough.

That's why I thought about jumping out of my chair and doing a little happy dance when I learned that MontessoriHouse offers curriculum binders for various ages about how to do Montessori in the home. (The sleep-deprivation kept me firmly in my seat.) They created the albums based on what they learned during their Montessori trainings. The infants and young toddlers binder includes 90 pages of teaching projects and instructions. I just wish I would have known about this shop before Henry was born. They have albums through kindergarten. I can't wait to get my hands on them!

What a great idea! I so enjoy your blog and soaking up any and all Montessori information, but I always think, if only there were a book that just told you what activities to do. Hooray! I'm off to check them out.
