Montessori at Home Review and Giveaway

If you’ve ever come across an activity on my blog that you’ve liked, then you will LOVE Montessori at Home by John Bowman. There are over 200 activities featured in this book that are perfect for making learning fun at home.
I really liked how easy it was to maneuver through the book and flag activities that I wanted to try. I appreciated the way the book described how to know your child is ready for that particular activity and also provided extensions.

I can’t wait to try the Snake Game with B (left)! They also have several pages of printouts (right) in the back of the book that will be fun. The book is filled with information and pictures (bottom), but like I said before is easy to read.

From the website:
Using these classic Montessori activities, your child will develop excellent motor skills, increased sensory awareness, and a self-confident attitude toward learning, while acquiring early reading, writing, science, and math skills – a wonderful preparation for success in school!
