This guide provides over 60 different lessons in all curricular topics for a Montessori classroom of children in the First Grade.
This material has been created for parents who want to help their children learn at home using the Montessori method. Each section of the binder provides a detailed explanation of a single classroom exercise, starting with how to make or find the equipment and then leading you through each step of the exercise.
We show you how to use what you have at home to create a fulfilling and exciting learning environment for your children. Teachers in traditional schools will also find this material amazingly useful for creating a Montessori classroom environment and curriculum.
One of the most important teaching aids for a Montessori teacher is this teaching album. It is a compilation of everything they have learned to teach during their Montessori teacher training course. We provide you with the step by step exercises and explanations that comprise this invaluable teaching tool!
