A Guide to Montessori Curriculum and Online Resources

A Guide to Montessori Curriculum and Online Resources

 I’ve been asked the question about the Montessori curriculum resources many times. It is quite inspirational to hear how many people are willing to discover Montessori for their children and desire to learn more about this method, practical side of implementing Montessori curriculum in their home. The amount of information can be overwhelming if you try to grasp it all at once. These are fascinating resources you can come back to over and over again. I found that the best way to understand the big picture is to combine the reading of Montessori books, online resources with lots of great graphics and browsing through Montessori videos.

Montessori Curriculum Resources:

Wikisori – Wikisori, among other things, is an online Montessori Album project built by Montessorians for Montessorians. Wikisori strongly encourages active participation, contribution and collaboration. Take as much as you want, but leave something behind to make Wikisori a little better than you found it. They currently have 574 pages of Montessori content and 806,603 registered users.

  1. I am currently doing a Montessori course but am finding it difficult to find write up’s of eg:
    Presentation, Points of interest, Control of Error : etc.
    The school that i am doing this at does not give us any text book or anything, except show us a few activities and then ask us to run around like crazy to get details on the balance of the subject.

    I would appreciate if you could send me the above for Maths, language, Geography, Science
    arts & culture and anything else that might be able to get me through this course.
    I am currently unemployed and cannot afford to go anywhere else to complete this course.
    Your help would be greatly appreciated.
    Look forward to a favorable response
    Kind regards

  2. It really frustrates me when I can’t print out articles. I want to keep this list of resources in my files so I can reference it when I need it. If I print using my computer print screen option I get tons of pages I don’t need. I would be so grateful if you added a print text only option for articles like this!!!
